About

Hi and thank you for taking a little time to visit S.ReetzBears!My name is Sharie Reetz and I have been creating and offering my original antique and primitive style bears since 1996.I was a doll maker by trade and did many craft shows.I found it difficult to make enough dolls for my shows,so in 1996 I designed a simple,but very sweet bear to add with the dolls,and to my supprise,the bears were so popular they sold out at every show!They eventually became more popular than the dolls,so I decided to focus on my bearmaking and here I am 11 years later and still love creating my bears.I try to add expression and soul to each teddy or bear friend.I treat the fur then highlight with inks and oils for depth and realistic features.This technique makes each one a unique,one of a kind creation.Bearmaking is my passion and I am always trying to create the "perfect bear"if there is such a thing!Thank you for visiting~~~~~Sharie.
