Betty, Lucy and Pat!

Some of you who have followed my blog for  awhile now will remember meeting Betty and Lucy, my faithful yet funky mannequins with the red hair. They hang out with me in my studio, and do all the modeling for the necklaces  and earring photos. Some people think they are scary....I think they are fun!

They work hard doing practice setups at home before shows!

They go on the road with me to various art and craft shows and home parties through out the year.

However, I  have always yearned for a "proper" mannequin bust, that I can actually use when I am designing necklaces. I like to see the design take shape on a body type form, instead of flat on of a beading tray! So, while I was on my vacation, wandering through antique stores, I found....... Pat!

 Now, I am not sure if Pat is a male or a female..hence the name "Pat"! ( For those of you who used to watch Saturday Night Live back in the late eighties and early nineties, you will remember the weekly sketch called "Pat".) 

 I am not sure how old my Pat is, but I am thinking maybe middle aged?? I think Pat looks more masculine with the collar down, and a bit more feminine with the collar up!

 Pat has already started working, for me and I am pleased with how its going! I might even take Pat to my next show! Pin It

I love your display, it's so fun to look at and I love the way the gals' flaming hair contrast againt the display (boxes?) you use that are sort of turquoisey/tiffany blue colored- one of my favorite color combos!

Are you kidding...I love your mannequins! Not so sure about Pat, though...his/her face is a little transparent these days!

I think Pat is a good addition to the family, and the display. She/He will be perfect for displaying your really wild pieces that need a simple backdrop.
