Good Ju Ju

I used to think my sister just made that word up! "Ju Ju". You know how sisters are always making up words that only the other sister understands. I knew what she meant when she was saying something either caused good or bad "ju ju". I just thought that this was our special little word. Then I started hearing it on television or movies and I spotted it in magazines and newspapers. Apparently, my sister did not create this word. (Sigh) It seems that everyone else knew this was a real word and it actually has an origin and can be found at Wikipedia. Click on the word Wikipedia to learn more.( I know that this is not actually the most reliable source, but it is there nonetheless).

I started this piece by creating a little polymer clay face with a mold. I then cut the molded clay into a triangle shape. It was so cool to me when I decided I could cut the little,round faces into any shape I wanted. It opened up a whole new creative portal for me! Anyway, I then glued the faces to a wooden skewer. I later punched the skewer into a wine cork which I painted black. I finished the piece by adding wire that I bent for the limbs. It was a very simple piece and the outcomes were obviously because of "good ju ju". Hence the name, "Good Ju Ju" doll.
