Kathrynne’s earrings were made using eye pins as the post. Champagne colored seed pearls were first threaded onto a thin gold tone wire. The wire was then shaped into tiny hoops and joined to the end of the eye pin.
The clutch purse pattern was created by measuring a similar pocket book made as part of a Repro Barbie ensemble. The pattern is all in one piece, a basic rectangle with a curved ending for the top of the purse. Gold obi brocade silk was used and lined with the same fabric as the dress. A tiny thread loop closes over a crystal bead.
The same gold toned wire used for the earring hoops was used for the bracelet. This time the champagne colored seed pearls were mixed with a very pale pink colored seed pearl for the bracelet. The beads are held in place by tightly coiled ends on each side of the wire. I also created a small loop on one end to attach a “charm” made of a few red beads threaded onto the wire and then pulled together before attaching to the end of the bracelet. The finished bracelet is then coiled around the dolls wrist.
