These fun and whimsical dolls are created using peyote stitch in the round. I will take you through techniques for increasing and decreasing to create the goddess figure. Once the body has been completed, a special focal bead or a bezeled rivoli must then be added to serve as the head. To complete your beaded goddess you will give her hair and embellishments of your choice.
Create a peyote body using increases and decreases to make a 'shapely' doll. Add arms and legs and select 'feet' and 'hands'.
Bezel a Rivoli or select a lampwork head and add wire hair. Various embellishment possibilities will be discussed and begun to give each doll their own personality.
