'Viola' is a 6.5" mohair, haute shabby bear, sculpted clay nose (no mold, free hand), leather eye lids, needle felted eye whites, glass eyes, hand sewn, center seam head design, hand shaded, stuffed with poly and copper shot for a cozy weight in the hand. Her arms and legs are thread jointed and her head is wobble jointed for lots of movement. She wears a sterling silver talisman around her neck for a bit of la de da' flair. Her eye lids are accented in a violet and sage. Her paw pads have been treated for a wet/worn/shabby texture....something new I discovered in my quest for a "well loved" appeal.
Someone on Facebook asked me where I get my bears names, and commented on the uniqueness. I make them up....inspired by my Native American and Scottish heritage, love for romance, fantasy, fairies, celestial, roses, nature and botanical themes...therefore translated to the bears names. I get chuckles from some of them....which makes me smile....I hope you do too.
