About Me

My name is Clare and I've been making my bears for over ten years (the real number is actually so long ago I can't remember). I love the fact that I make something that can be so well loved. I always thought of my toys as a personality when I grew up and I am the same with the bears I make. They all have something unique about them and are made with love, care and attention to detail.

I love the idea that I am creating an heirloom. Something that will be treasured by each generation and will inspire memories.

My studio is smoke-free and pet-free.

Please become a fan on facebook - I'd love to see you there and there's always the chance of an offer of giveaway.
