Still Playing With Dolls

Trust young designer Happy David to turn East European kitsch into hippy chic. While everybody in tropical Bora was wearing oversized shells, she stood out in a necklace of Russian dolls. I want one too.

I've always been fascinated with matryoshka dolls. These brightly painted wooden figurines are hollow so that more dolls in decreasing sizes would fit inside. Really- why didnt i think of this...kidnap the tiniest doll and then string it up with assorted beads (these thread covered ones go really well with it) to make a necklace or bracelet.

Matryoshkas have always been pop culture favorites...with Amazing Raze teams searching for clues in them and as props in Sesame Street to teach kids how to count. Well, girls, theres a much better way to use them now!
