More projects finished

I worked on black slip dress and it is now finished.  Am happy with the end result and it will find it's way to my booth, dress form and all, this week.
Here is a close up of the top of the slip and a necklace I created.

I used a piece of vintage lace trim, dyed roses and corsage petals for the large corsage and tiny ones at the top.  The necklace was created using bits and pieces I have in my stash. 

Have also been working on necklaces made out of old keys, an old watch, and some Tim Holtz bits.  The earrings at the top of the form are out of my stash.  Click on the pictures to get a larger view in order to see detail of the slip dress and the necklaces.

This mannequin was made by Karen Lackey of Starshine Salon.  If you like this mannequin, you can find several for sale in her booth at Merchant Square.  The torso mannequins are well made and weighted so they stand up.  Check them out!

Beautiful work. Love the necklaces. I've been playing with stuff in my stash for necklaces and yours will be an inspiration.

That Slip Dress turned out beautifully! I'm adoring Slip Dresses but until I can transform myself via the Gym I haven't been able to find any amazing creations in my size. *Le Sigh*

This slip is a "small" but I have several others in larger sizes that I will be transforming in the days to come. Stay tuned!!
