Here is the finished product of the new bear design!!! I hope you like her. Her name is Stevie... like Stevie Nicks and she is a 20" mohair bear in blond. She has vintage boot button eyes and and embroidered and waxed nose. Lots of detail work on the face with sculpting, plucking and shading of many layers. Her dress is a vintage christening gown that I found at an antique store. I then aged the gown more and added a flower ribbon trim and gathered the sides up enhanced with rusty bells. She wears a vintage lace bow on her head with a large rusty bell and that same lace holds a vintage key around her neck.
Stevie will be available for adoption at this years Christmas Teddy Bears On Vacation show in Toronto...
Now I think the rest better just be peaks only until after the show... what do you think?
Thanks for all the comments and inspiration!
Bear Hugs... from me and my bears!
