Win a unique handmade Bear by Ann!
From the heart of “The Summer Wine Country” in West Yorkshire, come these beautiful collectable miniature teddy bears. Handmade by Ann Bradley, with hand crocheted clothing and even knitted jumpers!
Ann has exhibited at fairs up and down the country, and even won awards from amateur bear making societies. Ann’s bears are sold all across the globe, with many requests coming from America and Australia.
Some of Ann’s bears are even in soldier’s pockets right now, keeping them company while on tour in Afghanistan!
Each miniature teddy bear is an individual, constructed from the finest materials with suede-like paws.
From start to finish, each miniature teddy can take up to 7 hours to complete, however it can be longer, if Ann is unhappy with the finished bear she will often redo the face or move the ears, whatever it takes to produce a pleasing final look.
Even though each bear starts from Ann's own same patterns, as they are constructed they begin to take on a personality of their own, therefore each bear is a truly unique and collectable item.
The bears are thread jointed and firmly stuffed, they are also weighted which gives them a more ‘lifelike’ feel.
Their eyes are black onyx beads and their mouths and noses are embroidered.
Due to the bears containing small parts, they are unsuitable for children as toys but would make the perfect addition to a bedroom or nursery (just be sure to keep them out of reach of tiny hands!).
Should you wish to order from Ann, you can email her with any requirements you have. You can chose what colour you want the bear to be.....
Do you have a wife that rides horses? Then the bear could be wearing a hat and boots.
Do you have a husband that likes fishing? Ann could make you a bear holding a fishing rod.
Ann has made customised bears as wedding presents, birthdays, anniversaries, and as congratulations on the birth of a baby!
We're delighted to have these TWO stunning newly made bears in need of a loving home. As every bear is individual, there will never be another bear like them, so this is the perfect chance to give the gift of uniqueness to your loved one for Valentine's Day.
