This is the last doll in a series of 12. I love the fox face. It is called Beesh ligaii ma-e (Sterling Fox, Navajo). This doll took extra long to bead as I used brick stitch for the entire piece. It has a Southwestern feel and features coral & turquoise in it.

I really enjoyed the first cuff I made and since I was "warmed up" continued in my cuff quest. This one is named Victoria's Secrets as there is a lock on her brain. The face is from ERA Graphics. I enjoy purple and the face is royal with the selection of this color. Size 11 and 8 seed beads, hex, wire, Delicas and size 4 squares were used. I also peyoted the squares several times to give the piece dimension. What fun. Another magnetic closure and leather backing finishes the piece.
Mr friend, Cork gave me the little toad and that's what started all this. I named it Toadstoy's Treasures. It is named after a little toad that moved into our backyard last year. The cuff has size 11 and 8 seed beads, Delicas, fused glass cabs, keishi pearls and leaves. It closes with a magnetic clasp and is lined with deer leather.
