La De Da' Bears by Bren Landers-Smith
One of a kind art bears ,celebrating life with old world charm and a modern attitude. Haute shabby bears!
I began designing mohair bears in 1994 when my daughter, Chelsea was a little girl for her own collection. She grew out of being interested in collecting bears for a time, so my life took off in other artistic directions. In November 2007, my passion bloomed again to design bears and thus, the La De Da' Bears business was born.
I work from my art studio located at my home here in Southern California. I work only with the finest materials, mohair, glass eyes and various quality fabrics. With the modern bears, I hand sculpt their eye lids and noses with epoxy clay. My hand is in all aspects of the creation process of each bear from pattern design, sewing to painting/shading to sculpting.
La De Da' Bears have old world charm with neoteric elements and attitude. It is my goal to provide an heirloom to pass down through the generations, telling a story about the far past, the recent past and into the future.
My hope is that the La De Da' Bears serve as a tangible reminder of all the finer things in life, as well as childhood, sweet memories, innocence and celebrating love. Most of all, I hope they bring you a smile.
I keep very busy here as well:
