Coralie Tresbonbon a Parisian Shabby Bear

'Coralie Tresbonbon' is a new redesign of my 6.5" line of clay nose bears. Coralie is an 8.5" mohair La De Da' Parisian Shabby Artisan Bear. Sculpted clay nose (no mold, free hand), sculpted leather eye lids with "wet" tear accents around her glass eyes for a magical, dimensional gaze. Her mouth is hand-painted. She is a center seam head design, hand shaded. Her arms and legs are thread jointed and her head is wobble jointed for a little movement making her nod more for a shy, "pick me up" appeal. She has extra 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. Her belly is very rotund. :-) She is created in a matted, sparse, two tones of hand dyed coral pink mohair. She has been treated and hand tinted/painted in multiple shades of clay and blush pink 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. 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....it is very mild. She wears a hand dyed and hand detailed french text with designs of crowns, birds, butterflies, shabby ribbon on her head and a vintage faux chandelier crystal accent around her neck for a bit of la de da' flair. She can stand on her own with a little help. She has a cute 'pigeon toed' stance when standing giving her a certain whimsy. Inspiration: Coralie is inspired by the Marie Antoinette era, Paris Apartment, Shabby Chic combined with some traditional bear design. Texture....shine....scent...sweetness. The perfection in imperfection, things that are aged and ageless. 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. Merci!
