Together with my daughter Megan, we have been designing and producing our individual creations under the Essential Bears label since 1992. We specialise in miniature soft sculpture creations and usually make one-of-a-kind or very small limited editions. The intricacy of design as well as the variety of finishes, including beadwork and embroidery, have become trademarks of our work. As well as tiny bears we also make a wide range of other creatures and our total annual output is generally only approximately 100 bears each. Our bears are available from our webpage and the twice yearly Hugglets show in London as well as on E-bay as well as several on line shows during the year. Our web page features a gallery of past designs.
