Contact the Artist

Thank you so much for visiting my page. I’m so excited to be back for another Ebearshow:)
A little about me: I’ve been making bears and other friendly critters since the early 1990s, concentrating on small and miniature bears in recent years. I love to search out special fabrics and trims for each creation wherever I go. My creations have won the TOBY Industry’s Choice award several times, and appeared in magazines in Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Germany and the UK, but the most rewarding thing for me is when a wonderful collector adds one of my pieces to their hug:)
Unfortunately due to the worldwide situation with the coronavirus, parcels need to be shipped via express mail to prevent them being badly delayed. Postage still may take a bit longer than normal, even though it’s express, but I’m sure you will understand.
I do combine shipping- If you purchase more than one piece, I will refund any postage after the first piece.
I hope you enjoy your stay on my page. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can:)
Stay safe and well! Have a wonderful Holiday season and may we all have a wonderful Happy New Year

Jingle Bells

by Karen Alderson

Size: 7cm 2.5”


Price: $ 140.00

Jingle Bells was one of my favourite Christmas carols as a child. The idea of riding in a sleigh through the snow was so magical, specially as I’d never seen a sleigh or very much snow growing up in Australia. This little girl is hand stitched from vintage and new long pile velvets and has 5 cotterpin and disc joints with glass eyes and wired arms. Her cheeks are lightly blushed from the cool winter air, and her face is airbrushed.
Jingle Bells rides in a tiny pink sleigh with golden runners, along with a tiny pink bottlebrush tree and a silk ribbon wrapped gift box. Her hat is removable and trimmed with silk plus and of course, two tiny jingle bells.
Jingle Bells is $140 Australian, plus postage, or approx USD$105, £78, € 87
