My name is Melanie Jayne, I am a mother of two young boys Patrick & Oliver, partner to David & of course the enthused teddy bear artist behind Bear Treasures. With one thing or another I have always been engaged with the art world, in the past my life was encompassed in fine art & illustration, mixed media & textiles, but that all changed in 2005 when I found the world of the collectable artist teddy bear. Since then I have never looked back & never missed a moment with the paint brush, oils, acrylics or charcoal pencil.

My life is now filled with a mohair heaven, of stuffing, English glass eyes, cotton, needles, scissors, cotter joints, nut & bolt joints, sewing machines, all of which I use to create the artist Teddy Bears I design & handcraft! ..... Using the finest quality mohairs & a combination of traditional &contemporary teddy bear materials & techniques I work full time on the bears from my home in Lancashire England. I also hand make and hand felt fabrics to create unique garments, hats and accessories for the bears

The bear characters I design & craft are bestowed with their own individual personality & lovable charm. The process to create my bears is a lengthily one, I do try to have new website pieces available on a regular basis, but as they evolve & as I am continuously adding new techniques to their design features the process can often take much longer.

I feel fortunate to have discovered this wonderful world & privileged to have met some fantastic friends & collectors along my way .....”

If you would like to commission a special bear please do contact me or visit my website for more details
