I'm thrilled to introduce you to Pacifica, a one of a kind Artist bear handmade with love!
She is a 14 inch bear with glass eyes, a felted nose, and wool felt paw pads and inner ears. she’s been handsewn from a silky dense aqua plush. Her head is cotterpin jointed, and limbs are locknut jointed for gentle posing. She’s stuffed firmly with polyfil and steel shot for weight.
She has needlesculpted toes.
She can stand with help. Her muzzle and cheeks have been scissor trimmed, sculpted with needles, and shaded.
She will arrive at her new home with a signed and dated hangtag, packaged safely.
Not suitable for children- she has small parts that could be a choking hazard.
Bear hugs, and thanks for stopping by!

It started about ten years ago... I found a book about teddy bear making one long and awful winter, and from that moment I was hooked!
I use the best quality materials to make each bear, whether it's Schulte mohair, or Corriedale wool. Recently I started needlefelting bears, a process of taking wool fibers and sculpting them using a barbed needle. A great way to take out some pent up frustration!
Supporting the handmade /artisan industry is vital to me. Coming from a very long line of artisans,crafters, musicians, and other creative types keeps me keenly aware how important the creative arts are. I buy and support local and handmade as often as I can.
I have won two URSA awards, the most recent being in 2017, for my bears, and even was featured on HGTV's That's Clever!- an old show about artists and crafters.
I hope you enjoy my work- it is truly my passion!
From my hug to yours,
