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.
