Hi, welcome back to my blog! Gosh, has it been hot today, but back to normal tomorrow by the sound of the weather forecast, thunder and rain. Good while it lasted though! A typical British summer.....
Please meet "Eliza" from my "Golden Girls Collection". She is from a small limited edition of just two teddy bears. She is currently on sale in my Etsy shop if you would like to meet her. Just click on her photo to be taken to her listing.
Well, back to work. I have almost finished a lovely little bear cub - he will be ready tomorrow as long as we get some good light for his photo shoot, so see you then. Have a good day!

Traditional - Contemporary, Whimsical - Soulful, Primitive - Outrageous, "Something For Everyone"
The House Of Genista Collection consists of:
*Genista Bears (Mohair/Plush/Faux Fur Collections/Different Ranges)
*The Miniature World Of The House Of Genista
*Genista "Chenille" Bears/Animals
*Genista Bears "Knitted/Crocheted" Collection
*The Katie Rose Collection "Needle Felted Sculptures"
All "Genista Bears" are designed and made by myself - A wife, mother of two grown up daughters and devoted pet owner of a beautiful Yorkshire Terrier (Megan ), a Cross-Breed (Jasper ), several cats (Oliver/Olivia), an African Leopard Tortoise (Timmy), 2 Goldfish and a 25 year old Catfish (Perky). As a woman with limited interests LOL, I design Bears, make Bears and also collect them. I have been collecting, drawing and constructing Teddy Bears for many years. This has been a natural emersion from a life-long love of sewing and a passion for Teddy Bears. With an interest in anything artistic, designing, painting, floristry, and a great love for animals (especially Yorkshire Terriers), this makes a good combination for creating Teddy Bears. I love designing Teddy Bears as well as making them, so you will find a variety of styles and materials used throughout my "Genista Bears". My daughter Catherine also makes the occasional "Genista Bear".
