When you look into the eyes of an animal do you recognise a unique soul residing there?
I definitely do - and so do lots of others. It is hard to explain the communication that you have with an individual that doesn't speak your language or even come from the same species. But I think that there is a universal knowledge you share, two individuals who know that they are kindred spirits, a shared connection that doesn't require any explanation.
And I also believe that it is the height of madness to think otherwise (a madness that comes from the kind of arrogance only an entitled human being can engender).
That's one of the reasons I did this Moon Bear as a "portrait" rather than foraging around in a forest for example. I had various designs done including one that was fully finished but I could feel there was something missing - it was too far away. So I went back to the drawing board, literally, and decided on a head and shoulders design instead.
Moon Bears have a golden crescent on their chests - each bear with a moon shape unique to that bear. They are beautiful. If you want to find out more the reasons I chose a Moon Bear over any other bear, please read on.

I design and handcraft everything with the intention that it becomes an heirloom: something that you want to hold onto long into old age and pass down to someone else.
The Moon Bear has a highly polished face and surrounding frame as well as a textured chest as they are pretty hairy. The gold bar on the chest is 18 carat. The chain is 24 inches and can be worn long or short because the bolt-ring catch goes into any part of the chain — which is great because it then works with lots of different necklines and outfits and is really comfortable to wear.
