Bead On


Dot Lewallen is an amazing bead artist. She participates in a monthly Bead Journal Project, embellishing (inadequate word) found soft objects like toys with an encrustation of beads making the mundane and mass produced into something unique and amazing. This odyssey she chronicles on her blog and this year intends to add the extra layer of using only recycled objects as the foundation for her work. Meanwhile on her SpeedieBeadie website, pictures of her past adventures in beaded and other dolls are there to inpire us all.

Dot happens to be a member of a doll club with a cool name, Guilded Lilies, in Columbus, OH. Part of the membership requirement is to make one doll for charity each year. Good on you, ladies.
