These Diva Dolls from Barbara McGuire turn into pendants, pins or framed art. What a simple yet evocative use of faces! It’s one of her favorite classes and part of a series she’s teaching in North Carolina in August.
Barbara’s works have a loose and flowing ethereal look. Even her mokume gane stands out as distinctly hers with graceful lines, thin layers, glints of metal leaf and sophisticated colors. She calls hers Intentional Mokume and will be teaching that in August as well.
Barbara worked in polymer industry for years and wrote 10 books so she has an eye for good tools.
She developed her own line including some ingenious measuring designs and hand drawn patterns made into deep rubber stamps which she sells online.
