I have been designing and making bears for the past twenty nine years and am always working towards something new and different. I love to watch each creation come to life when a piece is finished. I have traveled to many bear shows and conventions and met many wonderful people through the years. I am a self taught artist, I design and create each piece by herself. Most of the creations are one-of-a-kind, or very low editions.
Each design is made with quality materials using mohair and alpaca furs mostly, and every once in a while I will find that special vintage coat or wrap that makes a very special TEDDY !!!
German glass eyes are used in most cases and some are hand painted to give that special look to the one of a kind creation. I also use old shoe buttons for eyes from time to time for that vintage look. Each piece is fully jointed and some have armatures in the arms and legs for pose ability. I use poly/fill, pellets, copper bb's and coated glass beads to fill the bodies. The noses and mouths are hand stitched using perle cotton or floss.
