Finally I've finished my ADO Broken Hearts Challenge Piece..."Guardian of Broken Hearts". My thinking behind this is that often when one's heart is broken, we try to hide it. It is like a guardian takes it and protects it for us...however at times we can't help but let the world see - thus, the open skirt.
She is sculpted from polymer clay and affixed to a modified vintagebirdcage. The hearts in her basket are also polymer clay. She is dressed in vintage silk and antique lace and trim. Her hair is tibetan mohair. She stands approximately 12" tall. I plan on putting her in my Etsy shop later today.
