Hiiaka Noelani

On Monday a new doll came home! She is a porcelain BJD by Ana Salvador (Dragonfly Works), and I think she is so pretty!! Her name is Hiiaka Noelani, which means "Hiiaka, the beautiful girl from heaven". Hiiaka is the name of a Hawaiian goddess, she's the sister of volcano goddess Pele, and is the patron of hula dance.

Sorry the lighting in these pics is not so good, but I wanted to share her anyways ^-^

My First Beaded Doll: Snegurochka

Recently I have been trying to make a beaded doll. And today, I finished her! She is my first try, and represents the character "Snegurochka". I am very excited about her ^-^

She stands approximately 7 inches high, and is made entirely of glass seed beads (Delicas and Dyna-mites). This is my original pattern. I have a few things in mind that I want to try changing for my next doll, but on the whole I am happy with her as she is. I hope you will like her too! :) Here are some photos of her:
