      Synopsis:

      Creating a Beaded Art Doll requires an extraordinary mix of multi-
      media talents by the successful artist. It involves the design of a
      3-dimensional doll form. It requires an imaginative application and
      manipulation of beads resulting in a tactile, visual and emotional
      representation of the artist's goals. This year, these goals are
      focused on the theme: CELESTIAL REFLECTIONS

      The Third Bi-Annual 2007 All Dolled Up: Beaded Art Doll Competition --
      sponsored by Land of Odds, Be Dazzled Beads, The Open Window Gallery
      and The Center for Beadwork & Jewelry Arts in Nashville, TN -- sought
      out beaded art doll artists nationwide. This competition
      primarily focuses on the design skills of the doll artists; it's not
      merely a beauty pageant.

      Six semi-finalists were chosen by a panel of experts from The Center
      for Beadwork & Jewelry Arts from 13 wonderful entries. These were,

      Julie Rodgers, from Gallup, New Mexico
      "... Dolled named Life. ...Those colors, that movement, those
      entities in space, in the universe, are LIFE. It is constantly
      evolving, dancing, spinning, breathing, shooting, and playing. Within
      this seemingly non-ending movement is a delicate relationship between
      balance and chaos ...."

      Ralonda Patterson from Decatur, Texas
      "... Dolled named Azure. ... As you prepare to express your adoration
      to the Ancient of Days, you put on a garment of pure rightness. It is
      snug and holds fast to your true form for all to behold. ...."

      Teresa Hon and Connie Davis from Platte City, Missouri
      "...Doll named Sivad ... Sivad -- the sir name of two sisters --
      spelled backwards. Sivad -- two dolls -- starting as individuals but
      becoming one. Two stars, reflected in the sky, but living on earth
      find that though they were born of the same blood, their lives are
      taking different paths ...."

      The Dayton, Ohio, Art Doll Group,
      Including: Jann Christiansen, Christie Dunn, Peg Farmer, Cathy
      Helmers, Cathy Jeffers, Carole Ohl, Marie Prego, Linda Stiles-Smith,
      Shelley Steffano, Monica Walker, and Debbie Whitecar
      "... Doll named Diva Astra Laguna ... Sitting high above the summer
      lakes, you wave your starry glistening shine over the waters. When
      the sky is still, we can see the glimmers of your regal watchfulness,
      granting the water its sparkly shimmer. ...."

      Vera Fox-Bond, La Vergne, Tennessee
      "...Doll named Cleocatra, The Queen of the Milky Way... Cats are
      travelers. Some tribes roam on Earth and some roam in the solar
      system. ...."

      Kathy Vorenberg, Las Cruces, New Mexico
      "...Doll named Galilea.... She stood on the rim of the Yshtan Crater
      as each moonrise left the horizon, waiting for the ninth moon to
      appear. She prayed that the astral winds would be favorable. It was
      the eve of the Prime Solstice, the only night possible to view her
      sacred object, and her telescope stood ready at her side.. ..."



      Each artist, or artist group, was asked to submit images of their
      doll, as well as write a short story about its creation. The
      short story was to begin with this sentence:

      "Blues, whites, fiery reds and yellows --
      overtaking the sky from dusk 'til dawn --
      fascinate me, whether in my dreams, or
      longings for that something more,
      whirling nebulas, mysterious planets and stars
      I barely see
      ... my Beaded Art Doll, my celestial reflection,
      I name you .... "


      The images and stories are posted on the Land of Odds web-site
      (www.landofodds.com/store/alldolledup2007contest.htm ), and visitors
      to that web-site are asked to vote and evaluate these six beaded art
      dolls, in terms of design insight and control. Voting concludes
      1/15/08.

      The Winner will receive a prize of a $1000.00 shopping spree on the
      Land of Odds web-site. The Runner Up will receive a prize of a
      $400.00 shopping spree on the Land of Odds web-site.
