Hello Cindy,

I have been following the Art Bead Scene blog and your blog is linked there. I went to your blog and saw the small small black dress torso you display your necklaces on. Can you tell me where you purchased them? I have not been able to find them. Thank you kindly and I love your work.

I love that Lariat and white is so pleasing right now. Reminds me of the lights of Christmas, snow and a soft fuzzy blanket to curl up in.

Hi La Dona Jenny,

I'm not sure which torso you're referring to? I have an antique 1915 dress form I use to take photos of my necklaces. I found the dress form many years ago at a flea market. I have black velveteen necklace displays from Rio Grande that I use on occasion.

Hope that helps!
