Piera la Parisienne a Raggedy Parisian Girl

'Piera la Parisienne' is a 14" (with bow) teary eyed Shabby Parisian mohair La De Da' Artisan Bear. Piera 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. They are filled on the lower part of the eye giving a lifelike, forlorn expression. The clay is sculpted around the glass eye and into the mohair before the tear medium 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. Her long legs are needle sculpted with a bent knee. She has pointed toes like a ballerina. Her long arms hang gracefully and tight to her sides. She is created in a hand dyed pewter gray feathery soft, wavy German mohair, tinted in an antique clay. 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 look. Her arms,legs and head are disk jointed. She wears a hand made, up-cycled floral embossed vintage scarf which was coffee stained/baked/aged and fashioned into a shabby skirt with a matching head bow for a bit of la de da' flair. She also holds a coffee stained millinery rose (removable). She can not stand on her own but can propped or used in a doll stand. 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. INSPIRATION The Raggedy Parisienne Series was inspired by the colors of the gray skies of Paris....the aged, antique appeal of textiles which have frayed and tattered into beautiful textures. My Mom use to roll my hair into "rag" curlers from torn old pillow cases to create a head full of wonderful wavy curls.....I adapted that look into the dresses for my raggedy bears
