About Bearlescent

Bearlescent

Beautifully detailed Heirloom Gifts & Unique Keepsakes designed for the Adult Collector.

I'm Debby, I live in a small village on the East Coast of Yorkshire. I share my home with my husband and son, my daughter and son in law also live close by and we became first time grandparents to our beautiful grandson in November 2021. I love peaceful surroundings and village life and work full time as a Bear and Textile Artist.

Many years ago I studied City & Guilds Fashion Design parts 1 and 2 other than that I am self taught through trial and error.
I have crafted for as long as I can remember, a hobby for when the working day was done but I began making Bears to sell in February 2014 whilst working locally for a Steel Fabrication Company.
Two failed spine operations in 2014 and 2015 left me unable to return to my clerical position but being unable to sit and do nothing I turned my hands and time to designing and creating my own bears, Bearlescent was registered in April 2015.

My bear making journey started whilst on sick leave in 2012, I made my first very embellished hand embroidered bear onto wool felt. For a couple of years all of my bears were embroidered onto wool felt and hand dyed fabrics until local customers started requesting furry bears. At this point I moved over to designing and creating mohair bears often with embroidered paw pads and the number of fully embroidered bears declined until I rekindled them again in 2021.
For a number of years I concentrated all of my time as a Bear Artist and in August 2021 I created my 500th bear for Bearlescent, each one having his or her own individual style and personality. It's often quite unreal to imagine so many bears in their forever homes and all around the globe. I still share the same excitement with each and every adoption as I did with those first few..

My passion has always been hand embroidery, I particularly love Victorian and Heritage styles with lashings of detail. After joining Folksy I combined that passion for embroidery with a love of doll making resulting in a new range of hand embroidered keepsake dolls. I love all the fiddly details and finishing touches that can be added to the dolls. Presently, the bears are still my main concern as the majority of my followers have always been my bear lovers but I'm hoping to share my time a little more equally in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me, I was honoured and thrilled to be chosen as one of Folksys featured makers during 2021, if you would like to read a little more my Interview can be found on the Folksy Blog.
