'Lunette Silverflight' is a 8" La De Da' Parisian Inspired Artisan Bear. Her legs/feet are a modified hockey stick design, long arms that hang gracefully and tight to her sides and somewhat of a concave chest to resemble a long loved bear whose stuffing is a bit worn from many hugs. She is created in a matted, sparse, cream and a silver hand dyed mohair. She has been treated and hand tinted/painted in multiple shades of gray, blush pink and lavender and a touch of hydrangea blue pigments 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. She is stuffed with poly,natural crushed minerals (belly) and lavender buds, imported from Provence, France. I am adding lavender to all of my bears for a distinct signature element and to enhance the "hug" experience with a gentle, therapeutic natural scent. Squeezing the buds helps release the scent....it is very mild and when mixed with the minerals, adds a nice feel, both scented and a little crunchy to the belly area.
She has a petite embroidered nose and pale blush painted mouth and eye detail. Her ears are "chubby" and stuffed for a round full effect. Her arms and legs are thread jointed and her head is wobble jointed for movement making her nod more for a shy, "pick me up" appeal. She wears a hand embellished ephemera bit of lovely textured and crinkled ribbon with french text "Au Revoir' and 'Paris' inscribed for a bit of la de da' flair. Her wing charm completes the Fly Me to Paris story . She can not stand on her own but can be propped or used in a stand. She has a cute 'pigeon toed' stance when standing giving her a certain whimsy.
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.
