A little bit about me & the bears . . .
My Barney Bears are little works of art made to be loved & treasured for many years, beautifully handcrafted miniature bears bursting with character & personality, they have found homes all over the world, including the USA, Australia, Iceland, Finland, Norway, Sweden & all over Europe, Russia, Israel, Japan, South Africa to name but a few!
Entirely hand sewn with precision & attention to tiny detail & fully jointed with traditional cotter pin joints, cleverley filled with a special secret blend & weighted with micro steel weighting giving them a heavy & sturdy feel, but soft in all the right places! The design, craft & techniques used make each bear a very unique and special little creation.
Barney Bears are designed to be traditional classic bears, but with a quirky & cute little twist which I hope you'll love. . .
Each bear is designed & created by myself, Cheryl the bear maker, they range in size from 2 up to 4 inches and they are all unique & individual, each bear 'comes to life' with their own personality & cute facial expression, mischievous, happy, worried, wondrous, gentle, caring, shy, even naughty! to name a few.
Made in Derbyshire in the very heart of England known as The National Forest & home to The Peak District National Park, steeped in beautiful countryside with wonderful wildlife & ancient woodlands, an inspirational setting for creating & designing each little wonderful bear.
Please note: Barney Bears are collectable pieces of art for adults only, not suitable for young children due to the small parts used such as eyes & joints.
