She belongs to a friend of mine, who lives in VA. In an round robin
on a group I no longer belong to, she 'disappeared', or at least the
person who had received her (thanks to tracking, we knew THAT,
at least) would not return phone calls, emails,nor letters.
Surprisingly, after 3 years, Mystique showed up in a box with her
journal, and a note saying the person had found her and was
returning her! Hooray!
I asked to bead on her, and after her mom and I conferred, realized
the navy blue, white, and christmas green beads did not belong on
her branches...which the person who beaded her thought were arms.
Oh well, off the beads came, as well as the flower beads that were
scattered all over her form. You can see the beads in the bottom shot.
The flowers went to the great multi-colored flower field at the base,
on her back, filling that in nicely. The crystals are being reserved to
go in a dropped swirl by the pink curls at the side of her mask, when
the other bits are finished- nothing like swarovski bicones being pushed
back and forth while the rest is being worked on, to cut their threads!
I have pretty much filled in her face, and now have a sock on it while I
get to her branches....she is going home to Sherry on Thurs, and I want
her to be a good surprise!
