Amber loves the seasonal colours....

Amber, one-of-a-kind. Approx 8 1/2" tall.
Amber is created in mohair with complimenting Ultra Suede paw pads and black glass eyes This charming little girl is part glass pellet filled to make her nice and weighty. Amber is five way disc jointed with nuts & bolts. 

The seasonal colours have inspired me to create this sweet little Autumnal girl. From my studio window I can see trees in various stages of change, there is a red maple, a silver birch which has lovely golden yellow and glorious green leaves with a warm brown bark. There are also the beautiful Chrysanthemums in their wonderful colours.

I have dressed Amber is a dress that I have made, the skirt which is trimmed with vintage lace is dotted with creamy spots which match the teeny tiny seed pearls that are in the centre of the red organza roses  which she has on the waistline of the dress. The bodice of the dress matches the inner brim of her velvet hat. 

Amber's hat is lined and trimmed with an autumnal red flower to match the roses on her dress, to complete the trim I have added some more vintage lace.

I have hand knitted Amber a cardigan, its knitted in a toasted pumpkin colour, there is a tiny button securing it at the neck. 

Amber has been adopted - THANK YOU!
