Hand made lace, a special commission for the bears!
This year at the expo Aux Doite Fee, Chateauvillian, I had the pleasure to meet with two lovely local French ladies that hand make lace, their skill and devotion to the craft was inspirational. After watching them weave their lace bobbins, sometimes up to 500 bobbins in one piece of lace, I decided to commission them to make lace wings for some of my new bears. I took the fabric with me on the second day of the exposition and together with the ladies advice I match up the thread colors for the wings to the fabric. Late in October the lace wings arrived in the post and I have been busy making bears and now it is time to reveal the results! Please see the products page, Myth, Magic, Mystery & Beesley all have hand made lace wings. I would like to thank the French ladies without their skill in lace making these creations would not have been possible.
