Fleur will be making her new home in the United Kingdom!
Available on a “first come” basis. If the Pay Pal button is no longer visible or doesn’t take you to a check out page, Liliane has found a new home. I try to update as quickly as possible… please “bear” with me!
It looks like Fleur is listening to a very softly spoken secret in this photo!
Fleur is currently available directly from me for $342.00 US. If you are interested in purchasing her, please click the Buy Now Pay Pal button just above. Clicking the button allows you sign in securely to the Pay Pal system. If you don’t have a Pay Pal account, Pay Pal can still securely process your payment using most debit or credit cards… after clicking the Buy Now button, just choose the option that says “Pay with debit, credit, or Pay Pal Credit” I do not charge for shipping… that’s my gift to YOU!
This summer, when I’ve not been sewing bears, I’ve been on a bit of a silk ribbon embroidery kick. I just love this delicate and romantic needle art. I’ve often used silk ribbons and flowers to decorate my bears, but I’ve never tried embroidering the actual bear fabric before. I just love the results! Fleur is made from a lovely shorter pile vintage upholstery velvet in a beautiful sky blue color. Her muzzle/blaze, inner ears and paw pads are made from another vintage velvet upholstery fabric in a very pale flesh tone.
She is a delicate little creature who measures in at just about 4 and 1/2 inches standing. She has bent arms and straight legs with wire armature, so she can hold soft poses with her arms and legs.
Fleur has pale green eyes with an undereye white accent and a sewn in upper eyelid. She has subtle shading near her mouth and eyes as well as in her little ears. Her face has been deeply sculpted using invisible internal stitches. Her nose is stitched in rose-pink silk floss and has been sealed for durability and a soft shine.
She has front and rear paw pads with tiny little pulled and shaded toes.
I’ve shown several photos of her with my hand so you can see the tiny scale and intricacy of the embroidery. It’s done with 2 and 4 mm silk ribbon in shades of ballet pink with tiny salmon colored buds, and grass green foliage. She also sports a ruff made of peachy-pink micro tulle. Her ruff is not designed to be removable.
As always, I’ve paid very close attention to making sure that my miniatures have all the detail and intricacy of a much larger bear. I am also a stickler for proportion. I really like for them to pass for large bears until you see a picture of one in my hand.
Liliane will arrive lovingly gift boxed and with her own photographic Certificate of Authenticity.
