"Kitty Girl" Spirit Doll
In celebration of the adorable little black kitten, Gipsy, now in my daughter's home, here is "Kitty Girl" Spirit Doll. All of her small glass beads are round seed beads of various sizes except for the butterfly-shaped Farfalle beads that were used for the ruffle stitch of her hair. There's a pouch of polished river rocks in her base for standing weight. She's 7 1/2" tall with an arm span of 6". Clicking twice enlarges detail including her bead-studded body. Her hand holds a silver kitty face charm, and hanging from that arm are two hand-made beads from Beth Moore Beads Etsy shop -- one painted and varnished paper clay, and the other hand-rolled wool roving. My usual Swarovski crystal is hanging below those two beads and the large glass teardrop-shaped lampwork bead. Along with the crystal, she has homegrown sage imbedded with her stuffing for protective, positive energy. May sweet Gipsy be healthy and happy for many years to come!
