tina's teddies - handmade miniature artist teddy bears -

My name is Marthina Mössmer and I live in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. I specialize in creating handmade miniature teddy bears and other miniature animals. Recent designs I have been working with include antique-style bears and soft sculpture rocking horses. I also make needle-felted bears.

I started making bears about six years ago and sold my first bear on eBay in 2003. Items that are for sale are listed on my available page, while my gallery displays some of the bears and other items I have made over the past few years. You can also look at my most recently sold items.

Every one of my bears is one-of-a-kind and is completely hand-sewn. I spend about a week on a single bear, often longer if I am also making accessories. About half this time is spent on creating the face to bring out the bear's individual personality. Every bear receives its own signed and dated bear passport.

I accept Paypal! Read more about this and other payment and shipping options.
