I received a e-mail from a follower of my art dolls
asking if I had a tutorial of stringing a doll
I don't, and teaching is not something I do very well
But I took some pictures of the process of stringing one of my 
primitive ball jointed dolls
I start by making my hooks, and lying the doll out to be strung
also, I never string my work until it is finished
(but that is just me)
 all the fitting is done before I paint
using elastic beading cord and a long piece of wire
this is my process

my dolls are made from Japanese Paper Clay
sanded, painted with acrylic paints
and sealed with matte spray
Stringing is my favorite part of creating a doll
she comes to life
