About Bearlescent

Bearlescent

I am a Bear & Textile Artist, designing & creating 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, approx 5 miles from Withernsea and 13 miles from Hull. 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.
Working in an office for many years I spent any spare time I could on hobbies, particularly hand embroidery and sewing.
I began making Bears to sell in February 2014 whilst working locally for a Steel Fabrication Company managing the Health & Safety and helping with accounts.
After suffering with spine problems for a few years I had my first spine operation in September 2014. Unfortunately this failed leaving me unable to return to my desk job. At this point I began designing and creating my own bears full time, Bearlescent was born then registered in April 2015.

For a number of years I concentrated solely on Bears then over 2018/2019 after making over 400 bears, I decided it was time to introduce something new to Bearlescent. I began making collectable dolls in 2019 and they have now become a staple part of Bearlescent.
My real passion has always been Hand Embroidery and fine detailed work, I have recently started designing and creating small embroidered items for my Folksy shop and I''m thoroughly enjoying hand embroidery again.

My bears and dolls take many hours/days to complete and I use quality fabrics and notions from reputable suppliers in the UK and where possible I will purchase hand crafted supplies from other UK Artists and Makers.

I have undertaken many special commissions over the years, specific to customers requirements and have filled my home with beautiful hand embroidered items, the ring pillow (above) was given to my daughter and son-in-law for use at their wedding in 2017.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me. I hope you enjoy browsing my shop.
