Balance eludes me when I look for it 
and can only be found when I stop 
long enough to experience it.

I've been looking for "balance" most of my life.  When I like doing something, it's hard to stop or think of anything else until I'm done.  There was something about this Dreaming Libra that drew me to her every day.  Her embellished head piece got a bit out of hand...looking more like Medusa than a Libra dreaming of a set of balanced scales.  

She'll be ready to wear in a day or so.  I'm going to paint the Lacy backing before cutting it and gluing the ultra suede on the back.  Her headdress is filled with tourmaline, 3mm Swarofski crystals and little seed pearls.  I hope she's as much fun to wear as she has been to make!  And who knows, maybe she'll share some of that illusive 'balance' I've been searching for!
