Mosaic Mannequin

Progress as of this morning . . .

I'm loving the band around her neck; it's from the rim of an amazing antique plate from Bavaria that has hand-painted roses all over and is made of super thin porcelain with 24k gold edges.  It has shape and texture and makes me think of leaves on the forest floor.  The amethyst pendant, the porcelain pieces on the bodice that feature sacred cranes, and the yellow with black dot accents from a broken saucer,  all given to me by dear friends.

I copied this that was posted on a mosaic forum: "Love the contrast of the soft white flowers with the fierceness of the chain and the bodice! She is feminine but could kick *ss if she had to!
