Hello All,
I know it has
been quite a while since wrote here in my blog. I have recently listed a purse I have been working for some time on on my etsy shop.  It is a Conjoined Twin Monster Doll Paper Beaded Purse.

It is hand sewn from start to finish.  Each paper bead is created by me.  And each bead is sewn onto the purse one by one securely.

There is a zipper to enclose your car keys,cell phone, and makeup in i t. 

This purse is a form of wearable art and I hope you find your way over to my shop because I am always creating.

I hope you all are enjoying the Holiday Season

Warm Regards, Trina Sandress A/K.A.  DarkmoonDoll

Paper Bead Necklaces And More

Hello Everyone,
I hope you all are having a creative time and getting ready for the Fall Season.  I have been more of a Fall and Winter kind of woman because this time of the year is so very reflective.  I have so many thoughts that amaze me during this time whilst creating art.  I feel  in tune with Mother Earth for sure and the world around me.  The people I meet and the animals that show up can affect me profoundly.  Not to mention the dream world as well. 

Here are some of my latest creations now available on my etsy store.  I have been making a lot of Dreadlock Beads,and Paper Bead Necklaces. The bottle dolls never stop coming as well.  I love the process dearly.

Hello Anyone that is out  there reading my wonderfully scattered art blog.  I recently put some new handmade goodies on my etsy shop. I have been busy with commission work which I will show you all here as well.  A friend of mine saw me selling what I call a hair accessories container which I made from old honey and coffee can.  I used recycled cotton fabric,glued it on, I drew Vampires,and Dolls faces on them, sealed it with Mod Podge  and the end result is this
She asked me to make her 5 of them.  I will post how all five turned out soon.  Possibly tomorrow.

So here is Part 1 of my video tutorial on how to create Embroidered Fabric Beads.  I hope you find this helpful for using recycled fabrics to create wearable art.  You can use these beads to adorn your dreadlocks,braids and for making jewelry with.

Brightest Blessings to you and yours,
Trina Sandress
Hello Everyone! I hope that you are enjoying the Spring Season.  I have just uploaded some new videos today on how to make Embroidered Fabric Beads.  I hope that you find them helpful and inspiring.  It's funny how I always thought about making beads from recycled fabrics because I have a lot of fabric to spare.  It involves a lot of time and patience because each bead can take anywhere from 1 to 2 1/2 hours to complete.  I will be posting a video on how to make paper beads as soon is I get more supplies.  So I hope you all enjoy them.  I will post them one at a time so that I can load onto this blog successfully.

Thank you so much for everyone's support and encouragement to keep on creating.  Mother Nature is counting on me. :)

I am low on cash so in order to continue to adorn my dolls and handbags and purses I started making my own beads.  I use  shredded up junk mail or adds,hot water and glue.  I mix it up until is like a clay or paper pulp.  I then shape them into beads.  I let them dry.  Once dry I drill a hole in them and paint them.  

I wanted to share with you all two of my creations that are currently for sale and on display at Bon Vida Beauty Salon and Art Gallery 4429 Franklin Blvd. Sacramento,Ca. 95820. One I called Sun Goddess which is hand sewn,hand beaded with my own polymer clay beads I hand sculpted myself.  And also glow in the dark paper beads I created.  This bag is hand embroidered as well and took me almost two years to complete.

The Second is what I named Gypsy Evil Eye purse.  This particular creation took me 2yrs to finish.  I takes this long because I hand sew everything.  This piece is hand sewn,hand embroidered,and hand beaded using my own handmade polymer clay beads.

I have more dolls and and bags coming soon that I will be putting up on my shop.

Thank you so much for coming by to take a look.
