    How in the world did you get the shape of the chair, Anna? It is extremely versatile and makes a wonderful accessory for your girl. I'm also very partial to chairs.

    My partner has access to an engineering shop and he and I both weld steel. I asked him to put this together. It is several rings of different diameter welded together. The design still needs a little tweaking but once I have a chair that I am really happy with I will make a few and pop them up for sale. I will be sure to let you know Jilljackson if you are still interested. However I am not so great at making cushions...

    Thank you kindly Galacticat I am delighted you like it! On this occasion my partner welded it together and then powder-coated it. He is a much neater welder than I!

    here is an example of a piece I welded together called "Dancing girl"

    Very cool- I like it!

    Welding is a very tricky art- that's pretty cool you can share your interest with your partner

    The chair is unique, Anna, but I am also not good at making cushions. I do have some metal chairs, made by the son of a doll artist friend, but am more into more period furniture for my REDS.

    Thank you Jill! I have yet to explore other kinds of furniture. I want to make a Diorama for my enchanted doll, all in good time methinks!
