Excellence in Bear Artistry Awards 2014

I am absolutely delighted that my entry in the Miniature Dressed category of the EBAAs has been honoured with a Judges' Choice Award. This means that little Giselle (just under 3 inches tall!) will go forward for a public online vote. All of the nominated creations in each category can be seen on the Excellence in Bear Artistry Awards website - and you can vote on your favourite pieces by following the link!

I was inspired to create "Giselle" by the opulence and fragility of ballet characters, and their costumery. She is wearing a fully removable tulle and organza dress with a fitted bodice, and vintage lace armholes, with silk ribbons and appliqu├ęs.

Thank you so much to the Judging panel for their consideration of her! :0)

New: Available at Teddy Bears of Witney

The 2015 catalogue of beary delights has now arrived from Teddy Bears of Witney; a beautiful olde worlde shop situated in the village of Witney, Oxfordshire.
This time I will be creating Limited Editions (4 each) of "Fyne" and Dandi" - both fully jointed 1.1" tall micro dogs, made from Upholstery Velvet, and wearing tiny identity medallions as you can see below.

If you are interested in either of these dogs; exclusive to Teddy Bears of Witney, you can check this link HERE, or contact them for a catalogue.
