Melisa's Bears...

... introduces "Neytea and Scandi"

Adorable Baby Snowy Owlets...

~*~     on a 7 day listing     ~*~

I'm thrilled to introduce two sweet Snowy owlets ~ just finished today! I've named them Neytea and Scandi after the snowy owl's Latin name “Neytea Scandiaca”. The snowy owl nests on the ground, but these little babies needed something warm to cuddle in, so I hand knitted them a little nest.

Creating and photographing Neytea and Scandi was so much fun! They are such warm bundles of fluff and are so hard to put down... it's so fun to pose the two of them! I hope you love them as much as I do!

Neytea and Scandi are one of a kind artist baby baby owlets completely designed and hand sewn (no machine sewing) by me, Melisa Nichols. They are very detailed and as such they are their own unique individuals and can not be duplicated ~ true one of a kinds. Many, many hours went into these babies! I do not work with patterns or molds - just from photos and drawings, so there are no pattern they can be remade from.

Neytea and Scandi are made from very soft and luxurious vintage recycled blond mink fur from a vintage stole. Neytea and Scandi have been completely lined as are all my recycled fur creations. They are about 2.5 inches tall.

Neytea and Scandi's sweet baby faces are very detailed. Their faces have been scissor sculpted and thread sculpted. They have soulful black glass eyes and moveable eyelids - they can be posed awake, sleepy or asleep (their eyelids close as far as shown in the photos). I hand sculpted one of a kind realistic epoxy clay beaks for them which I hand shaded and sealed. Because this detailed work has so many variables, I will never be able to create more baby owlets just like Neytea and Scandi.

Neytea and Scandi have realistic feet with individually wired toes and epoxy resin and wire claws which I created to give them extra realism. They've been shaded and sealed.  Their wings have armature as well.

Neytea and Scandi are completely hand sewn and filled with polyfil, pellets (in their tummies), and an extra portion of cuddles. They are armatured for lots of fun poses!

If you have any questions or comments about Neytea and Scandi, please email me me... I'd love to hear from you! If you'd like to be on my mailing list, please let me know – I send out an email whenever I have a new creation ready for eBay.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing all of Neytea and Scandi's pictures. Thank you for visiting their auction!


Neytea and Scandi will arrive in a special box with hang tags that include their birth date, a picture of them and a signed Certificate of Authenticity. They are collectable owlets made for display only - not suitable for children due to small parts.

Thank you to everyone who views and collects my soft sculptures! You've made every auction such a fun & enjoyable experience and I truly appreciate your appreciation and support!

All my soft sculptures are created in a smoke-free home.

Please consider giving me 5 stars in each area if you are happy with your purchase.

If you feel that you can not give me 5 stars, please contact me so I can do my best to fix any problem or address any concerns you may have.
