'Perles Sweetélégance' a Pearlescent bear

'Perles Sweetélégance' is an 8.5" mohair La De Da' Pearlescent Bear. She was inspired by Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Perles views the world through premium glass eyes with hand sculpted and painted, clay eyelids (upper and lower) accented with sculpted wet accents for a dimensional and soulful gaze. The clay is sculpted around the glass eye before the "wet" medium is then added to build dimension custom to the head shape and eye contour. Long, flirty doe eyed lashed are applied during the process to give a genuine look of growing out of the clay. Her nose has also been hand sculpted, then sanded and stained in multiple colors for a leather-like effect. Her petite mouth is painted. The legs/feet are a modified hockey stick design with long arms that hang gracefully and tight to her sides. She is created in a matted hand dyed German mohair in two tones of silver. She has been treated and hand tinted/painted in multiple shades of clay and blush pink then blended for a watercolor effect around the eyes/cheek area and for an aged, vintage appeal throughout the body to resemble a bear from yester-year. Center seam head design. Her face has been needle sculpted to create a slightly upturned nose featuring a cute profile. She is stuffed with poly, copper shot (belly) and the highest quality lavender buds, imported from Provence, France. Lavender is a La De Da' signature element added to all of my bears 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. Her ears are chubby and stuffed for a round full effect. Her arms and legs are disk jointed and her round head is wobble jointed for movement making her nod more for a shy, "pick me up" appeal. She is the first in a series of pearl body bears, her torso is made of mohair then embellished with a layer of faux pearls held together with an invisible filament. The mohair peeks out a bit so the pearls seem to sit on the body in an invisible fashion. I added a silver rhinestone crown with some pale pink tulle (like Holly Golightly) on her head for a bit of la de da' flair. 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' Artisan Bears bring you a smile.
