As a prelude to tomorrow's Featured Artist post about Karen Williams, I thought I'd share an awesome Kickstarter project with you.
This project is by Darcy Horn of The Jade Dog Designs, and it's one of the coolest Kickstarter projects I've seen. Darcy wants to cover a life-sized mannequin... in seed beads. Specifically, in freeform peyote and brick stitch. Her project is called The Beaded Body.
I know I keep my language clean on this blog, but isn't that totally badass????
(Beadwork by Darcy Horn.)
She's already started beading a miniature mannequin as a representation of what the finished piece will look like. It looks like she used a Barbie doll, which makes this doll hoarder very happy.
So if you're wondering what to get me for the holidays, I'd be thrilled if you'd back Darcy's project and consider that my present. ;) In case you missed the link before, here it is!
Thanks for stopping by! Tune in tomorrow for a post all about a freeform artist who works on a smaller scale, and who is equally awesome.
And of course, have a sequintastic day!
