Meet "Artsy" by Melody Crust
Artsy is definitely not shy when it comes to entering a room. She is bright, bold and loves wearing all of her pink bling. When it comes to embellishment, Artsy’s motto, ‘More is More,’ is worn with absolute confidence and pride. Richly encrusted with hand-embroidery, hand-beading, ruched ribbons, dyed to match vintage crochet medallions, buttons, sequins, and so much more, she is truly a sight to behold. This divinely encrusted girl will definitely make a statement in your home.
