Doll galore

I received a big shipment of antique German dolls' heads and I have been playing with them. The most difficult part about working with these dolls is actually making the holes to hang them, my dremel bits are just not strong enough.
I painted this one white and hanged a tassel of purple agate.
This is a ring I made with the head of a tiny doll. I love the paint on the face. These dolls are hand painted. I some times like to imagine the person who painted them over 100 years ago.
I really like how this one turned out. The beads in the side are watermelon tourmaline, and I used a new technique for beading with wire, it was my first time doing that technique. The face of the doll is just adorable.
