Sundancer beaded doll.

Here is a beaded doll made from leather. When doing beadwork on leather have some pliers handy to help you pull the needle through the leather. It sure saves wear and tear on the hands. A thimble comes in handy too. Make sure you pick a needle small enough to go through all the beads you plan to use. This photo was taken when I was about halfway done. I used mostly warm colors to represent the sun/summer/heat and some sky blue beads to represent the sky. The face is made from carved bone.
