Bonica Angeldance - a Parisian Shabby Girl

'Bonica Angeldance' is a 10.5" (13" with bow) La De Da' - Parisian Shabby - Artisan Bear. Bonica views the world through imported glass eyes with sculpted leather eye lids with sculpted wet accents around her glass eyes for a realistic 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, sparse, multi process, hand dyed in two tones of candy pink. She has been treated and hand tinted/painted in multiple shades of gray and blush pink 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 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, so you get a little bit of relaxation with every hug. She is a lovely weight, under one pound. She has a hand sculpted clay nose which has been stained 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 hand dyed and hand detailed french images of birds, crowns, the word "Paris" and a postmark on her hand made shabby ribbon bow on her head enhanced with a pale pink millinery rose and a perfectly coordinated old garden rose button around her neck for a bit of la de da' flair. She is named Bonica after a wonderful Floribunda rose by the same name. 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.
