About

A passion for antique style bears,primitives and folk art

Hello and thank you for taking a little time to visit my about me page.My name is Sharie and I create hand crafted artist bears, kitty cats and teddy bear friends.I make each creation unique by adding hand painted and highlighted details with inks and oils to bring out their one of a kind look. I love creating the old antique and primitive style bears and often add whimsical creations when I get an inkling.My creations are based on ideas that float around in my head that I imagine a new piece will look like. From there its off to pen and paper where I draw all the details like the style I would like such as traditional, primitive, folk art or even whimsical. Next I draw the outfits I would like them to wear be it clown attire, a vintage dolly dress or maybe just a simple bow around the neck. Once I know the look I am going for I make the pattern then proceed to actually create the finished bear or friend.
I always try to think outside the box and try to come up with unique ideas for my designs. I often like to mix a traditional design with an art doll concept to end up with a fun whimsical character.
I find I am always thinking of new ideas for my pieces and never rest until the design is drawn, then made into pattern form.
I have been creating bears, kitty cats and other teddy friends since 1996 and mainly sold them at craft shows. In 2005 I started offering my creations on eBay and in 2007 decided to open my own little shop here on Etsy. It has been a delight to have had many of my bears and friends been adopted worldwide. I feel honored to have met so many wonderful people through my bears-n-friends and don't plan on quitting any time soon.
