Beaded Ladies for Fits of Whimsy

Just in - watch out ~ we can't stop playing with these! (click to enlarge) We just received our new shipment of whimsical fimo polyclay lady heads for making ... well, you name it! I got inspired while visiting our local art festival this weekend and came back to the studio to play with our new arrivals.  I beaded these little sillies with our new fimo heads, some beads from our Mermaid Seas, Gold Rush, Ocean, Violets, and Kitchen Sink Jewelry Maker's mixes (depending on colors in the head bead), and added a few of our Matsuno 4mm glass spacer beads onto our 2" silver plated eye pins. There are SO many possibilities ~ I'm going to try some of our downloadable origami on our bamboo tiles for the bodies next. You name it, it would probably work. If anyone gets into this idea - please send us the results - we'd LOVE to add to the beaded ladies gallery and credit your design!
