Mohair Artist Bear Lapel Pin is Sold
Please read all my shipping policies before you order this tiny treasure.
This lapel pin has been sold. If you want a similar lapel pin, one can be made just for you. Please message me privately to order your own one-of-a-kind lapel pin. Aunt Jewel is an artist teddy bear lapel pin. She is a vision in blue from her hand blown German glass eyes and her ruffled collar to her over-the-top, cobalt blue plumed and jeweled hat. She is made of sparse Schulte mohair stuffed with polyester fiberfill. She has black, hand blown German glass eyes and a nose and mouth embroidered with size 16, Finca pearl cotton. Her has is constructed of dyed pig skin lined with a brightly stripped Turkish silk. The "jewels" on the top of that hat are vintage Czech crystals, circa 1930. The point of her brass pin has a removable protector not shown in any of these pictures.
Aunt Jewel is a one-of-a-kind teddy bear designed and hand stitched by Shelley K. Bossert of Ursa Minor Miniatures. Like all of my teddy bears, this bear is not a toy and is not intended for small children. Small parts present a choking hazard. To see more of my work, please visit my web site, UrsaMinorMiniatures.com.
Because she has no feet, Aunt Jewel does not have my trademark silver star in her paw pad. Instead, she has a leather cutout with her name and my initials on her pin just below her ruffled collar.
In addition to personal checks and US Postal Money orders, I accept PayPal. Shipments paid for by check are held until the check clears.
I do not pad my shipping charges but do pass actual costs on to the buyer. ArtFire requires that I pick a number for shipping so I picked the least expensive, slow-boat-to-China rate offered by the United States Postal Service.

If you wish to choose a shipping method other than the USPS to a US address, the cost is more. That said, U.S. or Canadian purchasers may choose the U.S. Postal System, UPS or Fed Ex. but please request a shipping quote before making a purchase.
International purchasers may only use U.S. Global Priority Mail. Costs for Global Priority shipments vary by destination and package weight. Please contact me for a shipping quote before making a purchase. I combine shipping costs automatically.
