9¼ x 15 in. 23.5 x 38 cm. bodycolor on vellum
by Giovanna Garzoni
I knew when I saw this guy i wanted to make one a bit long and cosey like a boa....round the neck
she did not get thaaaaaaaaat long but a bit like I wanted Im happy to say..
The glaze came out just perfect even if I did not expect that almost metallic style...
I have used one of my ceramic beads and 3 of Natalie Pappas lovely beads
sari silk and a pretty flower clasp + Czech glass leaves
I call this one a she as I think she is the mother to the rest of the guys that came out of my kiln
and the rest of the family :)
2 focal beads with holes ..not finished yet..need some eye color...
