"Angele's" adoption fee is ADOPTED with Free Traveling Fees within U.S., (discounted international shipping).
As with all of my bears, "Angele" is a very special, One Of A Kind.
Hello & welcome.
I hope this finds you well.
I'm so happy for you to meet "Angele", (pronounced On Ja Lee). She is made from very special Recycled French Rabbit fur. Hours & Hours went into creating this Extra Special Beauty. They are from an old family friend Colette. My Mom has been walking with her every morning for over 30 years & my Brother & I went to school with her kids. Colette's Mom raised these rabbits many years ago when Colette was a little girl in France. I feel so honored to be able to give this gorgeous fur a New Forever Life. It is so ultra soft & in remarkable shape for it's age, (almost like new). You won't want to put her down or stop petting her :) I am so super pleased with how she turned out. She has such a pretty, friendly little face. I named her after Colette's Mom Angele. Below, you will find a photo of the Grizzly cubs I used as inspiration to create her :)
Her nose is hand stitched in a dark brown perle cotton which is shaded in black around the edges. Her face has been meticulously hand painted & needle sculpted for so much detail & character.
She measures 14" from the top of her head to the tips of her realistic toes & 11" seated.
She is made from the gorgeous recycled French rabbit fur I spoke of above, Lock Line in her neck, wire armature in her arms & legs and is securely cotter pin and bolt & lock nut jointed for wonderful posing possibilities. She can pose in just about every position you can think of, standing, seated, on all fours, laying on her tummy & back etc.....
I have also given her a fluffy tail :).
Her hand painted & needle sculpted realistic paws are made from leather, are hand painted & waxed for a natural feel, look & sheen. I also gave her black perle cotton claw stitches. Her adorable, expressive face is extensively needle sculpted and has a black perle cotton grin.
I hand painted her hand blown imported glass eyes in a beautiful amber & brown color & surrounded them in realistic epoxy clay eyelids.
Her nose is hand sculpted from epoxy clay in shades of brown & black for a super natural look. The nose is not sculpted separately, but rather sculpted directly onto her face, (it is so secure that there is no way you could even try to pry it off :).
Her face has been meticulously needle & scissor sculpted & a little hand painted shading in tones of brown for so much detail & character.
She is filled with steel shot, plastic pellets & fibre for a wonderful weighty, realistic feeling in your hands.
As with all of my bears, all of her seams are double stitched & fray resistant.
You will have so much fun playing with & posing "Angele".
Around her neck, she is wearing a gorgeous vintage rhinestone necklace collar. It is adjustable & hooks in the back. I added a tidy pin to keep it in place.
Everything is removable.
"Angele" will arrive to your home with everything described as well as her signed leather tush tag, signed & laminated hang tag, her decopauged Birth Tag, signed & laminated adoption certificate for authenticity, & her card with her picture on it.
