Announcement   WELCOME to BEARS...just b-claws by joyce. Please come in and visit, the bears are very loving and friendly.

You can visit The Bear's Blog at wwwbearsjustb-claws.blogspot.com Prudence is always posting funny stories and my newest creations. Please drop in for a visit, we would love to meet you.

I began collecting dolls in the 1980's then turning to teddy bears. In 1987 I made my first ever teddy bear and instantly fell in love. I began selling in Pleasanton, CA 1987-1991. In 1991 we moved to Tallahassee, FL where I continued my business and designing 4 miniature kits for purchase. Panda, Katrina (3" teddy), Katie Kotton Tail, and my first cat, Bogie. Bogie loved fishing and had his trusty fishing pole with him and his prized "catch of the day". I made the wee little fish out of ultrasuede, but wanted to add a little whimsical spin, so I used soldering material (borrowed from my dear husband) and created a little fish with just his head left, the solder wire was his skeleton. The story was that he became hungry on his way home.

These 3 kits were my first miniature designs, and again, I loved working with anything small. That lead me to miniatures, such as room boxes, woodland animals and then to needle-felting, and now applique and needle punch.

Today we live in Western NC and I continue to work with small designs making up wee little whimsical animals straight from my very active imagination. My favorite fabrics are mohair, wool felt and woven batting, I learned about coffee staining, and PRIMS, I like to "prim" my animals by using stained Osnaburg and using crushed cloves in with the fiberfill for stuffing their little bodies.

And that is who I am, just -claws.

PLEASE NOTE: My creations are not toys and not for children. Collector quality only.
Made in my non-smoking studio.

COMING SOON:

This summer I will be adding applique pieces and also needle punch designs, they will be for fall, beautiful colors and textures. Please check back soon.
