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.
Meet Columbus, the little world traveler! I just love his little map hat. I added some shading to this bear to give him a little more "age". He was only listed on eBay for an hour before he got snatched up! :)
