Just a repressed writer, wanting to dispense some wisdom?? Ideas for creating bags, beads, art bears, and art dolls, along with some "common sense" views of life in Post-Modern America.
"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."

Cara-Mello: Naughty Bear #2
This bear was created from an imported mohair that was HAND woven and HAND dyed. The mohair nap is stiff. He is fully jointed and contains armature which helps him to stand and also to make the arms more pose-able. I used fabric marking pens to distinguish his facial features. Cara in Italian means "dear, or dear one" according to Lucille; it also denotes his coloring.
