Ruby Fruiticosa

 Ruby is a Hedgerow or Woodland Nymph inspired by some wooden blackberry coloured beads; Rubus Fruiticosa being the Latin name for blackberry. 
She is embellished with hand made silk blackberry flowers, beaded blackberries made from black, reddish brown and natural wooden beads and textile leaves. The tendrils are stiffened embroidery thread.
Her hair is made from a reddish brown tapestry yarn and her eyelashes are applied fabric.

This image below is a photograph of real blackberry blossom with my silk flowers placed on top of the photo at the bottom and then re-photographed.
