Beading for a Cure 2011







This is Mother's Love. She is finally completed and photographed for the Beading for a Cure 2011 challenge and competition. This is an OOAK (original one of a kind) doll made by me (Dot Lewallen). I purchased the kit from the Beading for a Cure organization & added one bead type, sequins, a pendent, and crystal Rivolis to this hand made doll form. These are the 5 images I'm sending into the competition judging. Mother's Love will be auctioned off in the month of March/April on eBay for our charity with money going to the Colo-Rectal Cancer research.

Enjoy.

I love your faces so much! The character they add to your dolls is both special and identifying. I just can't think of words to describe how ______ she is. (See, I couldn't think of a word!)

Enjoy? Well, I don't think that's quite the right word to use - I'm sitting here in total awe! Your work is absolutely stunning Dot (and I consider myself beyond lucky that I actually own a little piece of it).
