Ballerina Bead

My daughter has taken ballet for the past four years, since she was three. I love to see how happy and joyful she looks when she’s dancing! Her instructor, Miss Mary, is moving to Chicago soon so I wanted to make her something special. I made a ballerina with dark hair and a white tutu to represent Alina’s recital costume. The goldstone I added to the white stringers washed out a bit and is difficult to see, but I’m still happy with the result as a whole. Alina’s costume has a large flower at the waist and a matching hair clip.

I’m hoping to make some more in this style, with a little tweaking I can see a Swan Lake bead in the future.
