Here is one of my newest pieces, made from mannequin faces that I've found at the flea market. Each one is first glued onto a piece of plywood, then I look at her and decide just who she is. "Pearl Diver" has sea green eyes that look amazingly like my Mother's. My sister thinks so too! However my Mother never dove for pearls.
She has hair made from natural sea sponges and painted a pale aqua with many embellishments; pearls with brass tassels made from tiny chains, seashells, glitter and beads, a piece of faux oriental money from Chinatown, a pair of little frogs, and the frame is painted with a pearlized paint.
She can be yours, she is for sale in my Etsy shop.
My next assemblage is called "Mardi Gras Girl" Look for her right here, soon!
