Catherine - One of a Kind Collector's Bear by SuziBear Designs, direct from artist

Catherine is a `one of a kind` 9” bear.  I have created her from a tufted mohair, and she has nut and bolt joints, cotter pins for her head,  glass eyes, wool felt paws, is pellet and kapok filled, and weighted with steel shot.
I have made her a dress from the bottom of an antique christening gown, which has been gathered in around the top with a piece of antique ribbon, and a small tag that says `love` on it has been incorporated into the bow. She also has a piece of the gown as a ribbon in her hair.

If we don't look after Mother Earth, Mother Earth can't look after us.
Respect and care for Gaia.

Suzi began designing and creating bears in 1984, having taught herself how to design, sew and craft at a young age. This hobby turned into a profession when her son Bron was born, as it enabled her to stay at home and raise him whilst she continued to work.

Over the years, Suzi has designed for Charlie Bears, won many awards, and her bears have been featured in Teddy Bear Times, Teddy Bear Scene, Teddy Bear Club International and The Teddy Bear Magazine.

She has always loved bears, and another of her main passions is for antique textiles. She adores trawling around numerous antique fairs finding vintage doll’s clothes and pieces of antique fabrics, so decided to combine these two interests to create very individual bears. For many years she worked under the name Kingston Bears, winning various awards, and selling her bears world wide, having a bear shop under the same name.

Having lived in the New Forest for many years, Suzi found that the forest's energies all around her had a big influence on her designs, so with this, and the influence of her main Spirit guide Bear in all aspects of her life, she decided to re-launch her business under the name SuziBear Designs in 2009.

Many of her new designs are connected to the healing properties of Mother Earth in some way…be it the protective energy from the Oak tree, or the prosperity and ‘dreams coming true’ associated with blackberries, and the various crystals some bears carry all have individual healing properties too.

These new bears hope to spread the message that nature is truly awesome, and each bear aims to bring about a realisation of just how magical this planet is that we live on, and how Mother Earth can help heal us with her gifts.
