Welcome to Brierley Bears

Brierley Bears are award winning, one of a kind, artist bears and other soft sculpture creations.

Each creation is designed and exquisitely handcrafted in Barnsley, South Yorkshire by me, Kat Hartley.

My 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.

Please note: Brierley Bears are designed with the adult collector in mind, and due to the small parts used in creating them they are not suitable for children under the age of 14


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!
