Handmade Must Have – Mount Royal Mint Spirit Bears
Crystals, gems, and miniature creatures have always captivated my imagination.
Growing up I would make homes and furniture from tins and boxes for my Littlest Pet Shop animals (god how I miss those toys – before they started looking like versions of Bratz dolls). I’ve been completely enthralled by the magical, dreamt-up lands of children lately (trying to figure out ways to once again be a part of them myself). Reminiscing and remembering how focused I used to be in shaping my own tiny worlds of wonder when I was little. It’s so easy to give into feeling bored these days (or resulting to movies and television to keep my mind interested), when once upon a time all it took was something like these spirit bears (or dinos, below) to pique endless daydreams…
Made by hand in Montreal by full-time artist Sabina, Mount Royal Mint incorporates semi-precious stones and crystals into the making of these intricate and detailed characters. I’d love to have one of these beauties in my workspace for good energy. Interested in where she gets her inspiration? Read on.
Dream on beauties – rediscover creation for yourself.
