♣- 7 Day Listing -♣

Repurposing at its finest... what is a more useful and positive way to give new life and pay homage to the creatures once used in the making of fur garments? I love to reinvent fresh and new collectible teddy bears and critters, using only the finest vintage fur.

Here is a sweet little bunny rabbit named Xander.  He stands about 7" (not including ears), ad is made from repurposed pristine "violet" mink fur.   It is almost white, with a hint of grey/taupe in the centre of the pelt.  His belly and inner ears are cut from dusty rose ultrasuede.  The pictures do not do him justice; he is much sweeter in the fur and quite a darling and dapper little bunny rabbit.  I made him a lined wool vest which seems to suit his personality. 

  • Xander stands at 7" (17.5 cm) (not including ears) and sits at 5 3/4"; he weighs 8 oz. (226g)
  • He has black glass eyes and epoxy resin hand sculpted eyelids featuring painted and sealed sclera (eye white)
  • His 4 dusty rose paw pads are cut from ultrasuede, needle sculpted and hand shaded
  • Xander is 5-way jointed; hardboard discs, locknuts and bolts in arms and legs, and cotter-pin jointed for a semi wobbly neck joint
  • His arms feature wire armature for poseability
  • He cannot stand on her own.
  • Gentle shading has been applied to his face to add dimension to his sweet features
  • Xander comes with a beautiful lined wool vest
  • His chair and bench are props only and do not come with him

Xander bears the signature "Linda Joan" on a leather tag attached to his derriere and as with all my creations, is dated and numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and a hangtag. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like additional information or pictures.

I have been designing and handcrafting teddy bears for 15 years. I am honored and humbled to have received numerous international awards, including Toby (Industry Choice and People's Choice), Golden Teddy, Ace, and Sydney Peoples Choice. I am a juried member of the New Brunswick Crafts Council, and have appeared on Canada's national French television network. For more information and pics of some of my previous eBay creations please click on the blue and red "Me" symbol under "Seller Information" and to the right of my eBay user ID "Bear-in-Mind-Collectibles".

If you would like to be added to my mail list to receive notice of available bears and friends, please contact me.
