BEADBLOGGERS and a photo of a Blythe by jean baldridge yates

Zephyr is a "duck lip" Blythe by Zaloa's Studio. Duck lips are not easy to carve, and Zaloa (Amy) did an elegant and phenomenal job.  Zephyr has beautiful hand dyed purple mohair from New Zealand. Her faceup and reroot are exquistely done by Amy. I made the earrings from coin pearls and tiny  fancy colored sapphires wired to sterling chain. Zephyr's dress is by Scintillating Dollies. --jean
