Local Isle of Wight artist Ali Hemper has been making bears as a hobby for years, but finally set up Bears and Diamonds in 2006. She designs and makes her very special bears by hand, from her home in Ryde, while her children are at school. A fan of bright colours and unusual fabrics, Ali's bears are real characters and always have a story to tell.
All of these bears come with their very own embroidered collectors drawstring bag.
Similar bears to these can be commissioned especially for you - please contact us to discuss an order. Ali will do her absolute best to create exactly what you'd like.
Not all our artist bears are on the website. There are many more artist bears available for adoption in store. If you can make a visit, we would be more than pleased to introduce you.
