In the early years of the new millennium we bought some delightful vintage chevron beads and thought what wonderful pantaloons they would make ... and our first ever character was born.

Joey's creation caused a creative surge of beaded characters...

An Introduction

One of our millennium babes, with genuine lapis lazuli cabochon eyes.

We are experimenting with crystal and bead eyes in our latest characters.

Unlike our dolls, the new line will not have beaded bodies, instead we will be trying clay and cloth and wrapped wire (think old fashioned dolls house dolls).

Inspired by the work of Katherine Dewey and Carlos Luschetti, we had imagined this creation as a dainty figure, but the finished article is more like a Beryl Cook character!

The book used to motivate us to add life to our new figures.

Anatomically correct, Katherine's creations are beautiful and the book has been an invaluable tool, with our new figures we hope to strike the happy medium between the lifelike figures of the Dewey book and our crystal eyed millennium characters.
