La Printemps - April BJP

The April BJP serves multi-purposes. It is a celebration of Don's 65th birthday; the mirror serves as a reflection of time; the coming of spring and a trip to Washington, DC. The doll has 3 floral gardens in her belly which are indicative of my visit to the DC Arboretum. The doll also incorporates a moss agate cabochon, a fitting stone for Spring. The fringe uses seed beads and small daggers. The doll hangs from a simple Ndebele embellished necklace. Happy Spring!

Such a unique piece, and so meaningful, and you can wear it too! Don't you enjoy adding mirrors? I'm making those my common thread in all my pieces this year. Lovely!

She is beautiful. I love the soft colors and the way you've been able to include 'pieces of your life' into La Printemps.

Since my entire lawn is pretty much nothing but moss, how can I not love this doll! She's wonderful :-)

What a sweet doll! I love her belly the best. It's really difficult to photograph shiny, highly reflective, beads like these. You did a great job, Victoria!
