A Face in the Crowd




Not only is "A Face in the Crowd" a great title for this blog entry, it's also the name of North Carolina's Julie Eakes' new business. Here's a photo of some of the pieces that I've been lucky enough to collect over the past few years. This talented lady builds some of the most beautiful face canes I've ever seen.
Her newest cane, which she writes about on her blog, is based on a Da Vinci drawing. I think this one is my favorite so far. In addition to being so very talented, Julie is one of the nicest people I know and has a wonderfully fun personality. If you're lucky enough to live in the Albuquerque area, she's planning a class on face canes in March. Further information can be found on her blog.

I'll second your comments, Kim. Julie is not only extremely talented, she's as nice as they come. I'm so grateful to have met her...

And, those face canes just simply knock my socks off! She's got it down...

Kim, you are so right, Julie is amazing and one of the nicest people I have ever met. I am proud to be part of her Carnival "crew". I have some of her pieces and they are even more spectacular in person!!!!

You are so right Kim, this last face is detailed it does seem to have been painted. I like it so much, even more knowing how hard it is to make them that perfect!
Thanks for sharing again and again.
