Beadbloggers and photos of Blythes by jean

These earrings were made for my girls, two mohair custom Blythes by Cindy Sowers. Cindy did the reroots on both girls and the faceups. She also made the faux suede blue hot pants outfit on one of the girls, who is named Hope, the name chosen by Cindy. She is a groupie, not unlike Penny Lane in the film "Almost Famous". She has a fantastic coat Cindy made. Cindy has her sister (she has a sister--together they are The Serendipity Sisters) at her house. Then Cindy made Pretti in Pink, the girl with the pink hair. They look great together and like to hang out together. Here is Cindy's Etsy shop. If you love the Marie Antoinette look, that is what she has been into, dress-wise for dolls, lately. Very beautiful dresses for dolls!--jean
