Inspiring Images

This amazing silhouette is a vintage napkin holder.
The diagonally folded napkins make up her skirt.

I am inspired to create one of these myself--perhaps with cut tin.

If I really want to be ambitious, I can use a jewelry saw and thin silver.
I haven't decided yet how to approach this.
I could even try an encaustic technique, or a paper mache.
I just think this is worth investigating.

This reminds me of the Art Doll Hat I made recently.
See more hats here.

This lovely item belongs to a woman in Norway who goes by the name Happy Meat.

I love this! I'll be hunting eBay to find something similar.

That is just gorgeous! I have an unusual napkin holder too - quite different from that, but unique in its own way. I'll take a photo one day and email it to you, Barb.
