Fiber and Bead Dolls 

These are soft muslin doll bodies wrapped in a cocoon of different yarns and embellished with randomly scattered glass beads. Want a story to go with these dolls?  Well, so do I.  But alas, I don't have any conscious idea why I feel the need to create them.  I love the look and feel of the fibers and the sparkle of the beads and they somehow felt right on these minimalistic human forms.

The dolls are approximately 18 inches tall. They are flexible and moderately poseable but somewhat delicate, so I certainly wouldn't recommend them for children.  They are intended to be displayed only.  They are currently priced at $48 each.
