I began working on the design for this 'Daisy Doodle' necklace around June 2007.
Due to ill health the piece was put aside in a bag and almost forgotten until I came across the some sketches and sample pieces for it.
It was intended for an exhibition I was taking part in with our embroiders guild group.
I found it again and finished working on it just in time to include it in the exhibition.

This is 'Sparkle' I mailed her off yesterday to her new home in the Netherlands. I had thought about making a star shaped art doll and the opportunity to join a swap for one came along on swap bot so I joined in. The swap was called star Dotee, although I don't think she is a Dotee. To me Dotees are Dotee shaped and I would think that this is more of an art doll.
She was fun to make and although quite plane, she is very sparkly with iridescent sequins and beads sewn all over her and a diamante on her tail.
