Kristina could not have been nicer or more helpful with my questions in helping me to customize and purchase her wedding dragons. They were made rather quickly and arrived quickly too, once she had shown me an image of the final product. In person the wedding dragons are even more amazing and beautiful than their picture could do them justice. I love them and know in January they will be perfect and adorable atop my book styled wedding cake next to the enchanted rose topper. This is a surprise for my dragon loving fiance' and I know he will love them so much when he sees them on the cake. It will be one of the elements that make his day, I am sure of it. ^-^ Something we will treasure always. I would highly recommend buying one of Kristina's handcrafted animal critters or dragons as they are just beautifully made.

About

A love for animals and art lead to a bear and much more.

Hello, I love animals and art. As a child I tried out pretty much every type of art and craft possible. It was my desire to bring my sketches and photos to 3D life that led to my first bear. Soft sculpture gave me the poseablity that clay couldn't, and was a lot more huggable.
I enjoy using a variety of materials when creating my work. Most of the work is done by hand, though I will use my sewing machine on some of the larger pieces. All of the pieces are one of a kind or very small limited editions so that they stay fresh and I can work on the next idea in my head begging to be brought to life. My creations all have a story to tell about themselves which I include on their handtags, usually as a short poem. These fun tidbits help you learn a little about their personality and the inspiration behind their creation.
Past accomplishments include having some of my bears included in articles by Teddy Bear Review and Teddy Bear & Friends magazines. In 1999, my polar bear Iggy, was nominated for a TOBY award.
My pieces are created in a smoke-free, pet friendly home. I try to do my part to be green as much as possible. This includes recycling boxes from my day job for shipping as much as possible and using unbleached tissue paper made for recycled paper for packing.
