Armand is a bear of these times. He is a bear whose sensitive heart shows in his eyes, his face, his entire being. Elena's bears are some of the most expressive I have ever met, and Armand is no exception. He positively tingles with sensitivity! He is made of thick and strong black viscose, of high quality, which has a slight sheen. He is a full bodied little guy, strongly stuffed, with a round tum and a large hump on his back, so really, he does not seem little at all. He is made to survive. He has a marvelous profile full of character, as his head inclines forward slightly, as does his well angled muzzle. His paw pads, hands and feet, are very specially designed and sewn, well padded`, with claws. His arms reach out to be held, or to give a hug. Armand listens and watches. He can see far into the distance. His special eyes and eyelids are the most realistic I've ever seen. Around his neck, he wears a cord with a vintage gold button, a seal with a crown symbolizing everlasting presence. He has the sweet scent of cedar. I love Armand.

thank you my dear Susan. This is the best characteristic for our Armand. The bear that is sewn in peacetime is a special bear. I am so grateful to you. My big hugs!💙💛🙏

Sigh.... Pia is a most precious teddy in my collection. With the most scrumptious curly soft mohair the color of fleece or flan or creme brulee or sweet buttermilk, and the most innocent and tender expression, she is the most cuddly endearing soul amongst my bears. Elena's ability to create and offer bears who reach deep within the heart consistently amazes me. Love the boot button eyes, maize hued suede paw pads, superb stitching and design. It also has to be said: stuffing is a big part of an artist's talent. That Pia has soft squidgy stuffing shows a big understanding of both the teddy and the human heart. Many thanks to Elena.

I love this delightful bear! Wilchelm, with his glorious and orangey-rusty colored mohair, is pure joy to have in my home! His eyes shine brightly with compassion and mischief. His dark chocolate, worn muzzle looks aged by decades of kisses. A magical purchase for me! Thank you, Elena!

Just the sweetest bear. Beautifully and strongly crafted with a delicate pink mohair on a dark chocolate backing. Her muzzle looks as if she's received lots of kisses, and her feet look like pink fluffy slippers! Elena's bears have individual personalities, and always a feeling of communication and connection like no other artist work.

Aliza is such a cheeky character. She likes to get up to mischief and act innocent when caught out. I love this bear to bits.
If you aren't sure if you should add one of Elena's bears to your collection. Stop hesitating, you won't regret it.

What I love most about Elena's bears is that each one is such an individual character. They are always beautifully made. But each bear has a distinct personality all of their own. If you haven't already got one in your collection, do yourself a favour and get one ASAP!!

Today, I have been spending time with James bear. He's a big and lovely classic bear, and very squidgy and cuddly to hold in the hands! He has a sweet and funny expression, with rather close set eyes, and it seems he likes to make faces at me. And oh dear, it seems he also likes to sit and watch a British Masterpiece TV mystery with me, before bedtime.... I love his beautiful warm brown mohair fur, and his wonderful upright ears, which turn slightly back at the top tips, with a joie de vivre expression. A true teddy bear!!

Susan, thank you for your kind words! I can imagine you and James watching the series, it makes me very happy. Lovely

This rabbit is so sweet and it's face is so wonderfully done.. as if it could talk to you! This artist always mails securely and right away even overseas. I have bought many of her creations and they are always a joy to see and hold and display. I have this one on my desk right now, reminding me to pray for the people of Ukraine.

Kristi, thank you very much!!💙💛
