Mannequins

I've developed a passion for wire mannequins.  I do believe I have Lynn (from Graphicus) to blame for this.  In the shop she displays her art work on various wire mannequins and now I can't get enough of them.

So imagine my glee when I spotted this little beauty in an ex-catalogue shop in my local home town.  I had to buy 3 of them; one each for me, Jo (my best mate) and of course Lynn.  The skirt has a little door in the back so it opens like a bird cage.  Apparently they're meant to be jewellery organisers, but not for us!!

Hi Jill. It was really lovely to chat to you on Saturday. I think you will have slept well on Saturday night. I love your mannequins and cant wait to see a little decoration on them. It's funny how Lynn has you looking at things differently. I'm looking for good pieces of wood to do something with.LOL.
Take care

Well you and Jo have obviously had a great few days! Love the mannequin. Have been to Stamp Addicts myself and, like you, am absolutely exhausted. Loads of work to do at home this week as well. Speak to you soon.

I love these too, Jill, although I don't own any. This is probably the prettiest one I've seen. The shape is lovely. Hope you have found a nice spot for it and are dreaming up a scrummy plan for it.

How are you? This is exactly what i am looking for....how tall is the mannequin??

Jill said...

Hi Michelle!

The mannequin is approx 15.5" tall with the diameter of her bird cage skirt being approx 7.5".

I'm not good at the moment, but hey ho, comes with the territory!

I tried to contact you direct but Blogger just said there was no profile. I hope you see this.

Love

Is there any way you can make one that would be 3ft tall and maybe the diameter of the skirt being 20in? Also, with out the necklace?

Hi Michelle!

I really wish I could help, but I bought this mannequin in a local Ex-catalogue shop. It was just a very lucky find.

Sorry.

Love

Jill
