Where is Summer?

We have had a remarkable amount of rain so far this summer, but despite this, more in hope than expectation, I have named my latest black bear cub 'Summer'.  She is a cutie, made of black Schulte alpaca and has a locline neck and spine, wired arms and four nut and bolt joints.  Her eyes are black glass and she has leather eyelids.  Her nose has been hand-moulded by myself using epoxy clay.  She is stuffed with Bouncifill and contains a calico bag of stainless steel balls.  Her pawpads are made from brown glove leather.  She is equally happy standing on all fours or sitting like a teddy.  Summer is on her way to California!


  1. Aww, she's very cute, I'm sure she'll perk up someone's summer no end!

  2. What a little cutie, she should find a new home very soon.

  3. A Perfect little bear as usual! Your bears are delightful Sue!
    Bear hugs to you!
