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.
