Fate







This is Nona, the fate who spins the thread of life. As I was making her, I came across a quote from Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, "Good and bad, happy and sad, all thoughts vanish into emptiness like the imprint of a bird in the sky." My version of the fates is not as dire and foreboding as some. Sure, she's mysterious and seems to know something we don't, but whatever life has in store for us one moment will only be a memory the next.

Your work is really beautiful. I was scrolling through etsy which is something i do when bored and I saw the face of one of your dolls and was struck by the expression. I travelled along through your etsy to your blog just to leave a kind comment and say your work is lovely.

The expression on this one is so lovely..all your dolls have so much personality and even a sense of spirituality. Wonderful work!
