naked lady, mannequin, dress form

I've finally found a mannequin to photograph RocksandPaperSwans necklaces on. I wanted one of those shabby chic, covered in linen or something, beautiful antique-y things but they are a little on the pricey side. This one was found in a little shop downsizing their stock in an antique mall nearby at a price I could afford.
For now I'm using her in the nude but later I plan to cover her with paint or pale tissue collage. I think I still have some old dress patterns in one of my many paper stash drawers that would be perfect.
So, here are the first new shots of the lovely Ms. ? (haven't named her yet).


I have lots of new things being listed in my shop now that I am really pleased with.
Everything I do is one of a kind.
Lovely colors and unusual mixes of beads, my polymer, and paper beads, very easy to wear.
