Pink Pearl - A Custom Made Bear

Over 100 designers/artists got together to raise money for little Layla Grace. After offering two creations, Autumn being one of them, I wanted to offer one more. With the deadline closing in, I knew a custom auction would be best.

The auction offered a custom miniature bear made just for the buyer. The buyer would be able to choose the style of the bear and the colors used. At the close of the auction, I emailed my buyer for details.

My buyer wanted a bear that would match her daughter's bedroom. So she requested a bear that was pink with black accents.

"Pink Pearl"

Pink Pearl is 5 way jointed. She has a cotter-pin joint in her head and thread joints in her arms and legs. I also added wire in her arms to make her more poseable. Adding the splash of black for her accents, she has a black nose, eyebrows and bows. Her scarf also has a row of black, along with a variegated pink to coordinate.

All proceeds raised went towards medical expenses that Layla’s family has accumulated due to this awful disease.
