Girl in a Swing

This has been an ongoing project - I scavenged a doll (obviously) and found the cage one time and then the "swing" another - it is an authentic bee on her stone heart - died of natural causes last summer. She has a message on velum, jewelry and odds and ends in the botom of her cage on top of newspaper and a bell bracelet on her left wrist. Her hat sports a jewel and thanks to Laura a feather in her cap!
She swings, her eyes flutter, her heart moves - all while she is "frozen" in the swing.

So Now that she is complete - she is off to be sold - forever fettered in iron.
