GuardDoll No. 1 "Gwydion"

This is the first in a series of what I have titled, GuardDolls. I wanted to create soft sculptures of empowered older women. They dress age-inappropriate because they don't give a damn what anybody thinks. And they carry a weapon or two to stick it to anyone who crosses the line.

A GuardDoll's purpose is to protect and watch over her owner's valuables. With a ring attached to the back of her head, she can be hung on a wall in an auspicious place.

Gwydion, the first GuardDoll, measures 16 inches and is constructed from the following: needle-felted wool & acrylic yarns, commercial cotton fabrics, lace, thrift shop cutlery, beads, fabric bead armature.
