Clara Sweetdreams a Victorian Bedtime Girl

'Clara Sweetdreams' is an 11" (12" with her floral head ornament) La De Da' - Victorian Bedtime - Haute Shabby Girl Bear. Clara views the world through premium glass eyes with sculpted and painted, leather eye lids accented with sculpted wet accents for a soulful gaze. Her legs/feet are a modified hockey stick design, long arms that hang gracefully and tight to her sides and slight concave chest to resemble a long loved bear whose stuffing is a bit worn from many hugs. She is created in a matted German mohair, multi process/hand dyed in two tones of a coffee/tan/brown. She has been treated and hand tinted/painted in multiple shades of clay, blush pink and smokey blue then blended for a watercolor effect around the eyes/cheek area and for an aged, vintage appeal throughout the body. She is very well loved, plucked, weathered and worn to look like a bear from yester-year. Center seam head design. Her face has been needle sculpted to create a slightly upturned nose and petite defined chin. She is stuffed with poly, copper shot (belly) and the highest quality lavender buds, imported from Provence, France. Lavender is a La De Da' signature element added to all of my bears to enhance the "hug" experience with a gentle, therapeutic natural scent. Squeezing the buds helps release the scent, so you get a little bit of relaxation with every hug. She is a lovely weight, under one pound. As with all my bears, she has a hand sculpted clay nose which has been sanded, stained and painted in multiple colors for a leather-like effect and a painted mouth. Her ears are chubby and stuffed for a round full effect. Her arms and legs are disk jointed and her large head is wobble jointed for movement making her nod more for a shy, "pick me up" appeal. She wears a collar of variegated coffee colored silk rose petals embellished with vintage text and designs with a pale blue, crinkled ribbon treated to look very aged. On her head she wears a faux "bonnet" of the same variegated coffee colored silk rose petals with millinery blue Forget Me Not flowers for a bit of la de da' flair. She can not stand on her own but can be propped. All of my designs are one of kind, no two bears are alike. From my heart to your hand....I hope the La De Da' Bears bring you a smile.
