My Prim Teddy Bears - Their Story

My Primitive Teddies are all Handmade original designs, through the design process they take on their own personality....

In the beginning, I just have a vague idea of what each Bear may look like when completed. I start with my Basic Bear,  I use all sorts of materials for this part, some antique & vintage and some new (but made to look old).  This is where their Bear Character begins.  My Bears are Tattered ~ N ~ Torn........RaGGed ~ N ~ Worn!

I add lots and lots of detail to each of my Teddies.  They are new but you would never be able to guess it, it looks like they have been stashed away in the attic of a Primitive Dwelling for years.

By the time I have completed a Bear, he/she has a unique Story to Tell.  My Bears are not your average perfect Teddy Bear, but rather Primitively Perfect.

Each one of my Bears will come to you signed and dated.  I will never make another one exactly the same.  I consider them OOAK.  So, if someday, you see a Bear that Steals Your Heart, don't say, oh, I love him, I want her~ but I'll wait until tomorrow.  He may not be there tomorrow and there won't be another one like him.........

Please Note:         My Primitive Teddy Bears are not intended for young children, they are made for the adult collector.
