I had quite a time trying to come up with her name. But, she is so sweet, I chose Dolcè (pronounced dole-che'), which is Italian for sweet. Luna, of course, meaning moon, and also after her mother.
She is 6" tall from top of her little ears to the tips of her little toes. She has a 9" wingspan. And the bead count in her wings? Approximately 490 give or take a few. I used clear and pink seed beads in her wings. I haven't finished her perch yet, as she has to have her own to go into the fair this year. After the fair, she will hang with her mother on a little off shoot branch of her mother's perch. But, if everything goes right, she will have her 'coming out' party at the Lace Day in Lafayette this year. They have their lace day every other year, so Dolcè and Bella both will attend....if I can.
So... what do you think of my new baby?
