Heart Chakra

This is my very first bead project - beaded in 1996. I belong to an art group in Denver that started out in the early 90's as a cloth doll making group. We still meet once a month for inspiration and support. Things naturally evolve and I began putting beads on my dolls. Other than a sprinkling of beads on a few other projects, this was the first time I beaded 100% of anything. She made her way to the Middlefish Gallery in Boulder. The editor of Contemporary Doll Collectors magazine saw her there and she ended up on the pages of Contemporary Doll Collectors magazine, Cloth Dolls and Animals magazine and Cloth Dolls magazine.

Notice the spiral pattern at the heart chakra.
