Hello, my name is Hayley Eliza Burlison, and I am the creator of Burlison Bears. I've been designing and making my own line of miniature bears since early 2006. I typically do two styles...traditional and whimsical. Most of my bears are distressed to look like an old well-loved friend. I've always been drawn to the look of antique bears. I also make other critters including elephants, rabbits, cats, dogs...etc. Whatever suits my fancy at the time! Most of my work can be purchased through ebay auctions.
Here is the latest miniature bear. Max is heavily distressed, including his paw pad and foot pad with woodwool peeking through. He wears a very primitively sewn felt party hat. Max is a real sweetie. Check out his photo shoot on eBay.
