Thank you for stopping by to meet Antoinette... something a little different for me, a tiny lady nestled in a shabby chic shadow box. Antoinette herself is hand stitched from vintage long pile velvet, with a bent arm and leg design and 5 cotter pin and disc joints. She has a needle and scissor sculpted face with embroidered waxed nose and airbrushed shading.
Antoinette wears a tutu style dress of pure silk tulle and a matching bow on her head, crowned by vintage millinery flowers. Little silk bows adorn her ankles as well, and she holds another matching vintage flower.
Antionettes shadow box was designed specially for her, the front is covered in lace and accented withmore lace around the frame, and vintage and new millinery flowers sprinkled with Swarovski crystals. Inside the box is a silk print of roses in soft shabby chic tones.

Handcrafted Artist Bears and friends from Australia with a girly vintage touch. Made from the finest available materials and trims, most pieces are one of a kind. A TOBY and Golden Teddy nominated artist, I've been making bears since about 1991. Most of my bears these days are in the miniature to small size range- (2-8") though I have been known to break out now and then into larger bears. I also teach bearmaking and make patterns for some of my designs. I enjoy incorporating vintage and antique laces, flowers and accessories into my creations wherever I can. Please feel free to drop me a message should you have any questions.
