Handmade artist bears from Devon.
I’ve been making bears since 2002 when my sister first bought me a pattern. After my first attempt I made my own pattern, which has been tweaked a number of times since. I enjoy using different fur fabrics, traditional mohair, long and lush to short and dense, even patterned or unusual material – giving each bear it’s unique appeal.
All my bears are completely hand-made using traditional method of cotter pins, glass eyes and lead or glass pellets, filled with polyester filling. My bears are sold as collectors items and are not suitable for children under the age of 14.
Every Jinnee Bear comes with a sewn in tag and a swing label giving it’s name.
Please see adopted bears in the Gallery for my portfolio of past work.
