Isolde - 21IN mohair bear by Emmas Bears - OOAK
By Emma and Mark Nicholson
Isolde is a stunning big girl, just born from the Emma's Bears studio. She has been made from two long pile (40mm) mohair fabrics - one in a blonde/beige and the other a warm ginger/chestnut. The mohair has a natural distressed finish to the pile, but we have given her a good comb through to open up the fibres. A gentle comb from time to time will help keep her looking soft and fluffy, or you can let her mohair settle back to it's natural wave.
Isolde has been designed to stand unassisted. She has firm leg joints combined with flat paw pads, weighted feet and firmly stuffed limbs. She does a pretty good job of standing up by herself, but will still topple over if bumped or pushed. She also sits beautifully and is fully 5-way jointed. Her paw pads are a perfectly matching ginger/chestnut faux suede, and we've left them natural.
Isolde looks out through black glass eyes and has a hand embroidered black cotton nose. We've trimmed back her face and shaded her muzzle with silk-dye. She wears a hand-strung very intricate Japanese glass seed-bead choker draped around her neck. There is a clasp at the back and you also get a lot more length then is shown in her photos - so you can drape it lower on her belly if you prefer - or just remove it and wear it yourself?! (the necklace alone cost AUD$50, it is a stunning piece of art in it's own right).
Isolde is a one of a kind, very heavy (weighing just under 2kg), solidly built 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. ~*~
