A LITTLE BLUE
I seem to go through phases of using a particular colour, for quite a while its been pink, but the last couple of weeks its been blue's turn. Perhaps I have been influenced by the cold weather we are having. However this coming week it will be a red week, not because of Christmas being around the corner but because I am working on large and small bears from my Arts & Crafts range in red and cream.
Here is a little peep at some of the bears I have made just recently from my blue phase.
Well thats by blue period over with LOL!!! Roll On Red!!!
My name is Jacqui Ellerton and I trade as Jac-Q-Lyn Bears.
I have been designing and making bears for over 15 years. My bear craze has turned in the last 13 years from an addictive hobby into a fulltime passion. I am probably best known for my wacky style of bears which have my usual tell tale signs eyelids, enamelled eyes, sculpted faces and paw pads, embellished with airbrushing and not forgetting droopy ears.
Bear making has enabled me to travel to Japan demonstrating bear making within a large department store.
In 2009 I was fortunate to win an URSA AWARD for one of my Toy-Box Treasures Jessie and in 2010 I won another URSA award for my Urchins Jellie & Bean. In 2011 I won an URSA award for Prestbury a Toy-Box Treasure, and this year I am very proud to say that in 2012 I have won another 3 URSA awards with Tobias Crumb a Toy-Box Treasure, Podge a wacky bear and Old Friends a pair of Toy-Box Treasures. I have been featured in numerous teddy bear publications throughout my bear making career and also commissioned to make a bear for a TV advert for a very large American company.
