Madison, from my Neé Manteau Series

Image Description
All four of the bears in this series were made from the same vicuña coat. The garnets for Madison's ring and hat were purchased specially for this project. The beads and lace appliqué on Madison were harvested from a Victorian blouse given to me by the customer who ordered the first in the Neé Manteau (born a coat) series. There is plenty of left over vicuña for more bears in this series. Owing to the labor intensive nature and one-of-a-kind designs these are among my most time consuming bears to make.
Approximate Price/Value: $300
