View Full Version : Mixed Media: Beaded Fabric Doll w/ Seashells

July 11th, 2005, 07:28 PM

Materials: seashells (dyed aqua to echo tones in fabric) cover top of head, glass beads, two agate beads, larger seashell, cotton fabric, stuffing

Beaded fringe does give the item some weight ... wonderful feel it has, laying in my hand. Approximately 7" long.[/

Thanks. Couldn't believe how long the beading took, but it was worth it, I felt. :)

Not yet, but since there has been interest I have been thinking about it.

Great! I love using seashells in art and from quizzing a gemstone and shell museum and shops, I found out that it can be very hazardous to one's health to drill or work on shells (since it's hard to find them in beading shops and catalogs quite like the one I found). I'm going to work outside and wear a good fitting mask if I drill a few holes in any with my dremel!

As for duplicating them, there is one "guilt-free" (their term/claim, not mine) way of making more of the one you love (at least that works in art, hahahaha).

Advertised guilt_free (polymer clay) seashells -- http://www.anniesarc.com/GuiltlessShellsCatalog.htm (http://www.anniesarc.com/GuiltlessShellsCatalog.htm)

I'd want to do my own ... I'd just have to teach myself how to do it. :)
