High Craft Bead Art by Mary Lemieux-Ruibal

Mary LeMieux-Ruibal in Philadelphia PA,  just completed this amazing doll and I had to share it on this blog because, her dolls are world class!   Her doll bodies are hand sewn out of felt to her specifications.   The painted face is another persons art, but everything else is Mary’s meditative creation.  Most people will dig their needle into a bowl of seed beads.  Not Mary!   She plucks the seeds out of the bowl/baggie and threads the seeds onto the needle from between her fingers!   Its the most deft way I have ever seen anyone thread seed beads!   In this way, she can multi-task with her eyes as she doesn’t look while she threads up the beads.   Amazing.
