About Bearlescent

Bearlescent

I'm Debby, a Bear & Textile Artist, I design & create beautiful one of a kind heirloom keepsakes for the adult collectors.

I'm Debby, I live in a small village on the East Coast of Yorkshire. I share my home with my husband and son, and also have a daughter and son in law who live close by. I love peaceful surroundings and village life and work full time as a Bear and Textile Artist.

I attended Hull Riley College many years ago studying City & Guilds Fashion Design other than that I am self taught through many years of trial and error.
I began making Bears to sell in February 2014 whilst working locally for a Steel Fabrication Company.
After suffering spine problems for a few years I had my first spine operation in September 2014 which unfortunately failed leaving me unable to return to my desk job so I began designing and creating my own bears and Bearlescent was registered in April 2015.

For a number of years I concentrated solely on Bears but over the past couple of years I have introduced collectable dolls and hand embroidered gifts to Bearlescent.
I have a passion for hand Embroidery and fine detailed work in particular heritage styles with plenty of detail, a touch of nostalgia and romance.

After creating 460 bears and seeing them adopted from all around the globe, I'm making some changes to Bearlescent during 2021 and introducing a new Heirloom range of Dolls and gifts.. There will be a wider selection of hand embroidery all with a Victorian feel and although I will still be creating bears for some time to come there won't be as many as previous years. I feel the time has come to move on with Bearlescent and I am excited with the new ideas and designs I have in mind.

Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me, please pop back if you would like to see my new creations, I try to add new items weekly and have new design ideas buzzing around my head constantly.

    Polly is the most adorable and beautifully made keepsake doll. The embroidery on her legs is exquisite and the pantaloons and gorgeous. I can highly recommend Debby’s creations, Polly isn’t my first and won’t be my last purchase from Bearlescent.
