Bears by Two Hearts

Designed and handmade by Trish Hansford

Hope was made exclusively for the Ovcare National Cancer Centre in Australia.  She will be part of an auction on November 11, 2010. 

She is only 11.5 inches in length and does not stand on her own.  She prefers to sit at 8 inches.  She is made from a 3/4" pile of distressed white mohair.  Her paw and foot pads are 28 ct. linen.  I stitched my two hearts in pearls on her left foot pad.  I designed her necklace using faux pearls and tanzanite crystals.  She also wears a lace headband in a nice shade of lilac.
