WIP Panda "Heart of Gold"

This series of pandas was inspired by the beads and charms
 that I used to make necklaces for each panda:
Panda #1 with the theme "Peace and Love" 
has a blue necklace with Peace symbols and glass hearts.
Panda #2 with the theme "Valentine"
has a "Love and Be Loved" charm and pink glass hearts
with love charms down the back.
Panda #3 with the theme "Heart of Gold"
has a "Heart of Gold" charm with
gold lockets on a gold chain. (see photos below).

I will be using a just slightly cream colored white mink (see photo above
of my completed Peace and Love panda holding the gold necklace
and white mink that I will be using for Panda #3)

I will be using the black fur again for #3
because I think the gold jewelry will look best on black

I will be stopping my work on pandas after #3
because I really need to get back to working on my
Custom Orders even though it is not as much fun
as working on new OOAK designs.

I changed the necklace and added a large gold locket and
put the heart of gold charm hanging down the back.

This panda will definitely be another black and white panda.

I found this unique embossed black leather for the paw pads.
I hand painted a pink-gold heart in the center of each paw.
