Umiko - 17IN hand dyed turquoise mohair bear by Emmas Bears - OOAK
By Emma and Mark Nicholson
17" (43 cm)
This stunning big girl is 'Umiko', who's name means child of the sea in Japanese. Umiko is made from a piece of our super long pile curly hand dyed mohair in a soft turquoise. Her cheeks are a shorter dense white mohair and her belly is the same curly long pile mohair in the raw white.
Umiko looks out through black glass eyes with fine hand sculpted polymer clay lids. Her nose is hand embroidered in 100% cotton and she is fully T-pin jointed. Umiko is designed with four 'feet', and has hand pulled toes on each. She is a sitting/laying bear only and is weighted with glass and steel shot for a lovely heavy feel to her hug. The height measurement is with her legs in the standing position - sitting she is 12" (32cm) from belly to ear).
Umiko wears a silver-tone metal necklace with multiple turqouise charms that is fully removable. She is a one of a kind artist bear.
~*~ Please Note that these bears are designed to be Adult Collectables and not intended for infants and young children due to small parts (eyes) and potential for damage (excessive limb twisting/ busted seams etc) – however child safe versions can be custom made and I would think that the bears would be fine with sensible, gentle children (yes – I am sure they exist!) Convo me if you have any concerns. ~*~
