This is Phoebus! With the holidays rapidly approaching (how is it late September already?!), I have fall and winter on the mind, so of course I thought of polar bears! I started off with a more realistic bear in mind, but sometimes things don’t work out the way we plan. Regardless, I think he’s adorable and am very pleased with the end result!
I recently tried my hand at creating some little ballerinas for the shop, and I’m officially addicted! This is Angelina, the Sugar Plum Fairy! She’s inspired by the Nutcracker ballet, and I think she’ll be the perfect addition to someone’s holiday decorations! You can find her on Etsy here.
This is Ruby! She has a red rose and a dainty pearl necklace. Isn’t she adorable? You can find her on Etsy here.
Continuing on my Halloween kick, this is Wanda! She’s going trick-or-treating as a little witch, complete with hat and cape! She’s listed on Etsy and is ready to ship!
This is Pongo, a male Bornean Orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus)! This species of orangutan is an endangered species, with a wild population of only 45,000 to 69,000 in the world. There are actually three subspecies across Malaysia and Indonesia, and their numbers have declined drastically due to deforestation and loss of habitat.
Pongo is my first (and possibly last) foray into using Suri alpaca for all of his long hair. I seem to much prefer working with wool!
