Deviant Art Doll in A Box

So did I tell you the story about loving to create?


this time I

decided to create something completely different. Not jewelry, not a painting. ....

can you guess by the above picture what my plan is that I have been forming in my head?

What I have been planning and now am pretty much finished with is what I will call a deviant art doll box.

A box that contains a beautiful doll that is missing half an arm. As with all art, there is a meaning. Love yourself as you are. Let others see your beauty under your superficial flaws. You are beautiful.

I painted a wood cigar box a teal blue on the inside and black on the outside. I used a silver permanent marker for the lettering:

"You are beautifully made and I accept you lovingly as you are"

Because this lovely girl is beautiful on her own, she doesn't feel the need to cover herself in fine clothes or jewels although she does favor them and they lay amongst her as treasure. They are more than simple treasure, they are memories captured in textiles and stone.
May your memories be sweet...

I love to create.

It creates a happiness in me
that doesn't leave.

I moved my jewelry into my storenvy exclusively and have decided to keep etsy for other art..

Today, I was thrift store shopping and came across this...

Shes a beautiful monster doll minus half an arm and I knew she had to come home with me for my next project. She's bolted and sewn together and her entire body is a greenish blue color. Shes perfect ...

So perfect in fact that I am going to create an art piece around her..... and then the art piece will go into my etsy shop
