9.8 inches (25 centimeters)
Jade is a white lion cub. She measures about 9,8“ (25 cm) sitting - without her ears.
Her fur is a wonderful realistic looking plush. I stuffed her with natural sheep wool and some steel shots for weight.
Her nose is sculpted of clay.
Her eyes are of realistic blue German glass.
I needle sculpted her face and gently shaded her muzzle by hand to achieve a living expression. So she needed some whiskers as well…
Instead of a neck joint I gave her a lockline running from head to tail - like a spine.
So Jade can move her head up and down and side to side (and everywhere in between). A very realistic feature. Her legs and her ears are wired.
I made her pink paw pads of suedette. Of course she received claws which I formed of clay.
She will come to you with her black velvet ribbon and her Certificate of Authenticity including a cute photo.
Of course Jade grew up in a smokefree home.
Please note: Due to small parts that could be swallowed, Jade is for the adult collector only and not suitable for children to play with!
Jade was not created of existing patterns, but designed only from photos and sketches, and exclusively by myself. She is completely handmade - a real OOAK.
My name is Yanina Link and I am a graduated fashion designer. Creating unique and completely handmade bears (and their friends) has become a wonderful profession for me. I only use high quality materials and fabrics for my creations. I am a real vintage fan, and so I am always looking for antique lace, buttons, fabrics... all over the world in oder to issue my bears with these beautiful treasures. I am really honoured that my "children" find their homes around the whole world. To see my bears in high quality pictures, please visit my blog!

You are always welcome! :)
