Heir Bears by Jane Woodard

     Welcome to Bright Star's "Summer Sizzler" Teddy Bear Artist Online Show!   

  

 

   Please visit all the Heir Bears who came to this special event just to meet you!  I am Jane Woodard and I have been creating real fur bears and other critters, using recycled furs, since 1999.  My fur bears are heirloom quality, fully lined with a cotton fabric to stabilize and reinforce the fur.  They are created to ensure you can pass them on to your children and grandchildren.  You might also find a few mohair and faux fur creations which have been added to the den. 

I have been featured in articles in Teddy Bear Review (including on the cover) Teddy Bear and Friends, Teddy Bear Times, and most recently the March 2022 issue of Teddy Bear Times and Friends magazines.   Severa1 of my bears have been the proud winners of the URSA Awards in 2016 and 2020.
