Welcome to Brierley Bears

Here you will find one of a kind, artist bears and other soft sculpture creations waiting patiently to find their forever homes.

Each unique creation is full of character, has a name and a little story written especially for them.

Every creation is designed and exquisitely handcrafted in my home studio in Barnsley, South Yorkshire by me, Kat Hartley.

I only use the finest quality mohair, alpaca and faux furs and each creation is fully jointed and nicely weighted.

My award winning creations have travelled many miles to be with their new owners. Some have stayed here in the UK, but many have gone as far as the USA and Australia.


To adopt your own one of a kind creation, you can meet the orphans here.

Commissions are undertaken

I take great pride in my work and hope that each adopted bear brings lots of happiness to their new families.

I hope you enjoy your visit!
