Beaded Chakra Art Fetish

I didn't set out to make a Chakra figure . She has been waiting patiently for me to understand what she wanted. Sometimes it takes me years to hear what the dolls tell me. Don't worry family I don't hear voices , but somehow the figures have a way of becoming what they want to be and not what I set out to make. She was a exercise in how to make a small human figure. One day we were doing some beading in our doll club and it all fell into place. I don't know much about Chakras but I made sure that I used the correct colored beads in the correct center of the body. Beside the bead work I have done embroidery with metallic thread .

Chakra means Wheel in Sanskrit.

Consciousness and energy move from one
frequency to another in spiraling fashion

End of summer

Just a few pictures to remember summer by. Peach picking was a fun day , I didn't know that our grandchildren didn't like peaches...More for us :) The watercolor in the back grown was painted by my Mother, Laura Stanick.

The Clear Water Festival in Asbury Park was a nice day out with the family.

The look on Kayla's face when she came across the poor stuffed wolf...
