Seashell Girls


I really haven't been in the crafting mood lately, but something bit me 2 nights ago and I whipped out two seashell girls! I tried something new with one, and placed a little jeweled sea horse in her arms. I can't take the credit for the idea, but credit goes to my friend Kandi. :) I dressed my first vintage doll about 3 years ago and it was so much fun that I could not stop at one. Since then I have probably made 8 dolls, and kept 2 for myself. Each one is one of a kind creation with a unique dress designed in seashells and vintage jewelry. They are time consuming, but it's something I really enjoy doing. I'm working on a third one today and hope to have it added to the online shop tomorrow evening.

Here are the new girls, all decked out in their jeweled seashell gowns.

Queen Pinkie (above) is already spoken for but Ms. Seabrina with seahorse is available and will probably be on the web site tomorrow!

Got a price check, the scarf is $25 and has a small brown 1 inch stain on it, but I looked at it too yesterday, it is really cool.
