Arsenic & Old Lace challenge doll ~ Etalli


Pictured is Etalli my "in progress" Arsenic & Old Lace challenge doll. Since Arsenic is a metalloid, the metallic face seemed appropriate. I also am choosing a lot of metal-like beads to go along with the theme.

She is really hard to photograph, but you get the idea.

Nice!!! I really like the 'hair'! :D

Thanks, LB ~ so far she just has 1 ⅔ rows of hair in. There is a lot more to go -- but had to give her some so she could "talk" to me and tell me what to do. LOL

Seems she likes that needle-last time it was at her bottom!LOL!
Bet she will cause a stir at the bead society...wish we had one here...Aryd'ell

LOL, leave it to you, Ardy'ell, to notice where I park my needle ~~ I'm so used to seeing it stuck in so many places, didn't even notice it in the photo. I'm looking forward very much to going to the bead society meeting tomorrow. It isn't a fun drive --- only 23 miles but takes 45 minutes to an hour to get there.

This doll is stunning! Love the color beads you have chosen. Is that a Artgirlz metal face?

She's already gorgeous!

Beadin' Gram/aka Jackie said...

Thanks everyone for your nice comments. I have her front all finished now and will start her back soon.

Yep, Dot, that's an Artgirlz face. When I bought it I wasn't sure what I'd do with it ---- but knew there would be a doll somewhere it would be perfect for -- and Etalli is the doll :-)

And the bead club meeting was GREAT.

I really love all your beaded dolls. I do have a question though, how do you attach the faces? They are so gorgeous.

Beadin' Gram/aka Jackie said...

Wendy, we all have our 'favorite' ways to attach the faces. Usually I use E6000 glue and then bead around the face.

Glad you enjoy my dolls -- I love doing them.
