Show Me Sunday - People Beads with Rebecca of Songbead and the Curious Bead Shop

Hi ABS-ers! Happy Sunday. Here we are, with more 'people' beads. Last week, I shared some of Sally Sutherland of Soul Silver's gorgeous doll beads - and the lovely Liona shared some of her beautiful designs, featuring Sally's beads, with us! How beautiful is this necklace?

She has many more in this collection, so do check her gorgeous work out!

I love the serenity of the porcelain face. I am definitely drawn to faces.

I was and am in love with beads made out of doll parts. Rather the more realistic ones than the cute ones. There is a special fascination they have :)

Here is my bead and necklace
