'Freedom Bellringer' is a 6.5" freedom loving, patriot bear made with distressed, heavily plucked, cherry red mohair. She is a haute, shabby bear with a one of kind hand sculpted clay nose (no molds), leather eye lids, needle felted eye whites, glass eyes, hand sewn, center seam head design, hand shaded, stuffed with poly and weighted with 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. Her collar matches her "shabby" patch on her left arm and her right toe has been "mended" to give her a well loved, worn presence.
As with my other bears....(with the unique, fun, signature names), 'Freedom Bellringer' was inspired by the red roses in the photos, "Let Freedom Ring'. One of our favorites in our rose garden.
