Wanda -- The Bear Lady's Profile

About

Deep in the boreal forest of far northern Canada, is where you'll find my home. Our winters are long and harsh, so keeping busy indoors "creating" helps pass the time. I love living in the "wild"; close to the eagles, wolves, coyotes, and especially my favorite - Bears. I spend many hours hand making Bears and Teddy's using old fur coats, and other salvaged materials. When I need a break from "stitching" I turn to wire, creating jewelry from copper, brass, leather, stones, clay, beads, crystals and other "found objects" - crafting "talismans" for those seeking something totally unique.
