Well...I dont have a name for her yet. It will come to me sometime soon. If you have any suggestions please feel free to pass them my way.... She took me all day to work on...off and on...I had a difficult time with her crown, but I finally got it to work...for some reason I have a hard time soldering sometimes. The solder just wont hold! I use flux...and I tried both my torch and an iron. Thought I had it...with the iron...and when I started adding the other wired pieces...it broke...so I figured another way to make it work...but its not how I wanted it. It works though...and it holds rather nicely. I learned a new way to do this...and might use it again in the future...
Hope you enjoyed your day off if you had one. I did! My heart goes out to all military personel....being a retired Navy wife, I feel for ya!!! Military life is not easy.

Ok, here she is completely finished now. I added just a few little pearls and added some shimmery paint which you really cant see in this photo. I also wired up her hair so you can see her arms better.
Thanks again for all your wonderful advise...
