Bella Bears' Beginnings
Isabella began making mohair teddy bears as a hobby in 1992, and loved it enough to begin professionally in 1995. Her award winning designs and pieces have been adopted and created by thousands of people around the world, and she has been a featured artist in numerous magazines and shows. She was a designer for Clements GmbH Toy Company in Germany, and some of her pieces are on permanent display in a museum there as well. She teaches bear making classes in the Milwaukee area, and is available for private instruction. Contact Isabella for more information about private classes!
Please contact us if you have any questions about this site, Isabella's work, how to make a purchase or an order, and about booking her for class instruction in your area. Happy browsing!
