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.
I hand-dyed Apricot (top) a lovely shade of peach. Turned out great. Unfortunately she did not find a home on eBay so she will be moving to my etsy shop. Petal, the pale pink bear, turned out to be the happiest jolliest sort of bear I could imagine. She has found a home in Colorado.
