Hope you are having a good start to the new year so far!
For at least a year now I've wanted to create an Angel bear but it's only recently I found this beautiful pair of angel wings...
When I was a little girl I asked my mum to take me on a plane ride because "All my life I've never been on a plane!" I was 6 y.o at the time!LOL
Mum was a star and brought me on a domestic flight for my first airplane experience! I was so excited about it but the excitement quickly turned to great disappointment! I so desperately wanted to fly because I had thought above the clouds was where fairies and angels lived. I thought fairies travelled on clouds and I would get to see them in their beautiful clothes and their magical world...but to my shock, there was only a mass of white clouds and there was nothing there! My magical world above the clouds was empty and no one was home
So at a very young age I discovered that fairies and angels don't live above the clouds, they live in enchanted forests instead!
Hence, please meet my new bear ~ Angel of the Forest "Orifiel"
Orifiel is approximately 26cm/10.5 inches tall and is created from quality Shulte sparse mohair with a lovely fawn colour pile on a strong backing. This little angel is 5 way jointed using cotter pin joints and have large black German glass eyes. I've given her a little dark brown embroidered nose and lightly shaded her big rosey cheeks.
Orifiel is a weighty medium size bear, filled with quality polyflock stuffing and her feet also contains garnet. With a little initial help to steady her, she can stand quite comfortable on her own two feet.
Being an Angel, Orifiel has earned her beautiful feathered Wings and she's very proud of then too!
I wanted to keep this design to be simple so that her lovely wings are the main features.
So wearing only her birthday suit and a pair of beautiful wings, I've given her a gold heart locket to wear around her neck so that she can keep her name and contact details inside in case she ever loses her way! :-)
Thank you for stopping by and looking at my Orifiel!
