This is Silver Belle, my January doll. She is done in bead embroidery and Ndebele stitch. A glass bubble covers and protects her face from the harsh elements. Snowflakes adorn her head and feet. Bits of "snow" are encrusted on her stand. She can't wait for spring!

Bottom: The cover board of the book and beaded spine. The book is covered with palm. A copal bead acts as the closure for the book.
The good news! This book was accepted by Interweave as a finalist in the Beaded Book contest.
