The doll on the left is the very first doll I ever beaded. When I look at it now, I wonder what I was thinking. I entered her in the Big Fresno Fair and won Second Place in the Advanced Class of Beading in Fine Arts. The beaded hand next to her was done by a friend. She won First Place and Judges' Choice. The detail on it is spectacular.
My doll was inspired by all the people who sit around in Barnes and Noble bookstores reading. However, please note she is reading a Beading Magazine. The doll was actually beaded in Barnes and Noble and Borders bookstores. It was great fun and I met many wonderful people during the 60 hours I spent there.
