ANGELfor Nana
Every Christmas I give my Nana a decoration
as a kid I'd make them 
then I got old and bought most of them...
this year I've made Nana an Angel...

Each Angel has a Geisha Girl / Cuppee Doll / Betty Boo inspired face 
hand painted in acrylic paints and resins by Sam Maher

Made from abandoned dolly pegs, lace, thread and fabric scraps, hand sewn

Perfect for pegging straight on top of the Christmas tree, a branch or tinsel
