February BJP


Introducing Purple Passion. The face is an amethyst stone. She has metal bead caps for her boobs and holds a wishing star. The strap is done in Ndebele stitch. This was a very nostalgic piece for me and reminded me of one of my favorite childhood books, Harold and the Purple Crayon.

I love it! I do know Harold and the Purple Crayon - great inspiration :) And so cool that this represents so much happiness for you during February. The colors are terrific and the beading wonderfully tight. I really like the fringe at the bottom, too. Adds a lightness to it that conveys your joy.

At first I thought how beautiful, then I read your post about metal caps for boobs and just laughed.
Beyond that, I felt whimsical reading about Harold and the Purple Crayon. That's art -- evokes all kinds of emotions! My favorite colors too. :)

Harold and the Purple Crayon... OMG, I haven't heard that charmer mentioned for a long time!!!! I'll have to go find my copy and read it again. I was out of childhood by the time it was written, but I used to take a copy with me wherever I babysat to read to the kids. Besides that trip down nostalgia lane, I love your Purple Passion! Oh, she's soooooooo purple! Happy birthday, anniversary and Valentine's Day... hope all the celebration and joy will carry come with you into March!

She is something special! I love purple, too. That little star in her hand is just the right touch.
