All those jobs listed above are my least favorite part of my work. All I ever want to do is CREATE things, but without the pictures, how would I ever show them off to all of you? It's a necessary task, so I get it done.
Today I want to show you one of my newest favorites. I think she gives Clara a run for her money on being my favorite piece. I would love to keep her too, but I did list her in my etsy shop just this morning.
This is Clarice. She is a gypsy. Some call her a witch. I think she's a little of both. I like to think of her as Clara's daughter. She inherited her ability to see the future.
She is dressed like a gypsy for sure, with her floral print skirt and matching head scarf. She even has a long fringed shawl and jewelry.
She has very prominent facial features that are accented with hand-painted details....coppery-gold eye shadow, red lipstick, painted on eyebrows. And no gypsy would dream of going without her jewelry! I found a crystal ball charm for her necklace and though you have to look closely, she is wearing big hoop earrings with a little copper bead. A Swarovski crystal adorns her scarf.
I used another big marble I found on the Junk Jaunt for her crystal ball. I like how it reflects different things depending on the angle you look at it.
You can find Clarice right here, in my etsy shop. She certainly is a one of a kind witch!
Back to work! I trust I will see you all here tomorrow, for the beginning of the Giggleswick Blog Hop. You don't want to miss out!
