I've gone to the dolls

I've been working on something a little different, emphasis on little. I've been making doll jewelry. And I'm afraid I'm hooked. It's so little and delicate. I even did a little enameling and I mean little. But I have one problem, I don't have an Enchanted Doll of my own. Enter a generous group of doll owners from the Enchanted Forum. And I've been sending my creations around the world for fittings. I've sent to Belgium, France, Sweden, Australia and Kalamazoo. No really Kalamazoo MI, how fun is that? The first fitting is in and...

I think I just need to add one jump ring. But I also think I can make my hooks a little bigger. They are so small right now, that you almost need a tweezers to hook the necklace. But given this picture the hook could be bigger, making it easier to hook the necklace.

But I did get proportion right. So I'm very happy about that.

The necklace really suits the delicate style of the doll. And that's what I'm shooting for. This and all the jewelry I sent off in this first round of fitting has been very simple and all about size and proportion. But once all the info is in, from these first proto types, I have some really ambitious designs in mind. Think, Crowns and Pendents and Horns, Oh My. I can't wait.

I'm actually sculpting antlers right now. How funny that we both have that dream or our dolls. I'll share my progress.

Heehee, I used to have a t-shirt that said "Rome, Paris, London, Kalamazoo"!

Yren loves her necklace, and so do I! I'm planning a new dress for her just to show it off.
