Announcement   Hi! Thanks for visiting me here on Etsy.

I design antique and primitive style mohair bears and animals. All of my pieces are one of a kind. I use vintage or vintage style fabrics and trims to dress my bears. I always distress them for an old, well worn look. I want my bears to look like they just came out of the attic of an old home.

I will be offering my mohair, viscose & feed sack bears and animals for sale here on Etsy. I try to change my items often to keep things fun and fresh.

You may have seen my work...
I was selected by the editors of Martha Stewart as a finalist in the 2015 American Made Awards.

I have been 7x's selected by Early American Life magazine as one of the top 200 Craftsmen in America

I was nominated in 2008,2009 & 2010 for a TOBY(Teddy Bear of the Year) award, by Teddy Bear and Friends magazine.

My work has been featured in PRIMS, Southern Living, Early American Life, FOLK, Teddy Bear & Friends and Teddy Bear Review all here in the US, as well as Teddy Bear Times, Teddy Bear Club International, Teddy Bear Scene both in the UK and Teddy & Co. in Germany.

About

Come Join the Fun!

Brady Bears Studio grew from my love of art and antiques. I've been an artist my whole life, but discovered the amazing world of antiques while in college via a friend's mother. She was an avid collector of old toys and dolls, plus she created antique style teddy bears. Through her, I learned to love antiques and how to construct antique style teddy bears. I created Brady Bears Studio in 2006 while transitioning my business as an antique dealer to something where I could stay at home with my children.

I create my soft sculpture & paper clay animals to have an old-world look and feel. Each pattern is my design, and each piece is one of a kind. I use high-quality mohair, viscose and most recently antique feed & grain sacks, along with elements such as tea, coffee, and paints or dyes to stain and age my pieces. Each soft sculpture piece is jointed, stuffed with excelsior for an antique feel, and gravel for nice weight. I dress my bears and animals using vintage doll clothing, or vintage style fabrics. I love to incorporate antique pieces with my animals. Antique photos and postcards, old buttons, vintage jewelry, or small toys all add a touch of unique whimsy and charm to my creations.
