Everything old is new again
These are focal beads made especially for pendants. I've been sculpting little people since the 80's. Normally I made them about 4 inches tall with a hanging loop in the top of the head so they could be used for ornaments or hung from a car mirror. These are slightly smaller with a stringing channel hidden in the hair so that they hang perfectly as a pendant. The peacock queen and the mermaid are on etsy. Today I made a baker, a cat lady and a hippie chick. I have over 300 designs from the ornament days that I need to adapt slightly for pendants but I'm trying to get the patina just right before letting them out into the world. What do you think?
