A Ride in the Park! Latest creation for the Teddy Bear Artists' Invitational show in Binghamton, NY on August 16-18, 2012. The bear limbs are armature created for pose-ability; hands and fingers are found on the trike driver. Lady bear is made from upholstery mohair and costumed with soft white cottons, tulle skirting; decorated with pink roses, small rhinestone teddy pin, vintage "purse". The hat is vintage feathers with gathered ribbon and other florals. Mr. Trike driver is made from upholstery velvet and costumed in vintage wool pants and hat.
I've been trying various techniques with the "open mouth"....some are more successful than others. BUT these guys are depicting a HAPPY DAY with a ride in the park. A One-Of-A-Kind piece @ $275.00

WOW!! According to some stats I found here, someone is actually reading my blog?? Amazing! This gives me more impetus to keep up with "the Peacock's Eye" more frequently. I've been having a spate of creativity....jewels mostly.....but am now working on my Teddy Bear Artists Invitational Gallery piece for the 2012 August show. When I have that moving along better, I shall do a photoshoot....Suffice it to say, the lady bear is coming along well, equipped with hands and fingers, and should be all put together by the end of this week. I have been trying out various costumes in my mind; the piece is titled "A ride in the Park." She will be riding in a fancy wicker "ric-shaw" vehicle with her own driver.....LOL....Wait until you see!!

Anyway, I would like to show some of my latest jewelry pieces that are to be found at the Artisans Guild, Oneonta, NY.

Most of these items use vintage items....beads, steel cuts.....each is One-Of-A-Kind!
