One year ago I signed up to participate in an art project to benefit Ovarian Cancer Research called The Ties That Bind. The goal was to create an art doll using decorated neckties and charms, and to raffle it off. I created a charm from a heart shaped lampwork bead I made, and waited.
The doll is now finished, stands about 4' tall, and the raffle is open. She is amazing, and covered from head to toe in heartfelt artistic statements from over 80 artists. She is being photographed by Stampington Press, who will be doing an article on the project. Please visit the blog here to see close up images of some of the charms and ties, and and make a donation for the raffle if you can. Tickets are $5 each, or 6 for $20.
