'Angelique Joyspring' is an 8.5" mohair La De Da' Artisan Bear. Angelique views the world through shiny black premium glass eyes with hand sculpted clay eyelids (upper and lower) accented with sculpted wet tear accents for a dimensional and soulful gaze. The clay is sculpted around the glass eye and into the mohair before the tear me...dium is added to build dimension custom to the head shape and eye contour. Her nose has also been hand sculpted and stained in multiple colors for a leather-like effect. Her mouth is embroidered and treated to shine ever so slightly.
The legs/feet are a modified hockey stick design with long arms that hang gracefully and tight to her sides. She is created in an eggshell German mohair, tinted in multiple shades of clay, shades of grey, lavender, moss green and blush pink. 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 wears a sweet collar of pinkish mauve millinery roses around her neck, finished with a crinkled ribbon bow 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.
