The bears and buds on this page are the creation of Armella M. Dana. This is my twenty-first year creating artist bears for adoption. My bears are my passion and I never grow tired of creating because my bears are always changing style and character. Made from the highest quality materials and the very best of workmanship, my bears are birthed with love. A bear made to spread love . . . .
