I love Shakespeare. If I had had the ability, I would have wanted to be a Shakespearean Actor. Although I'm really fond of his better known plays like Hamlet, I love the ones that aren't done so often anymore like Titus Andronicus. For the time, his females are interesting and full blooded.

Ophelia probably wouldn't have usually been the sort of character I'm attracted to making, but reading an art book on women and water and death... Made me think again. It didn't hurt looking at all the Pre-Raphealite paintings of Ophelia floating in a tangle of flowers. It made me want to try to recreate the feel of the paintings with color and fabric texture. I like to think she turned out to be the forlorn creature the paintings portrayed.

Ophelia is 9 inches in height and ready to hang from a hanging stand. She is made from cotton knit,satin and patterned sheers hand stitched over her padded armature. Her hair is embellished with silver lined glass beads. Tiny silk flowers and vines of copper wire encircle her body.
