Hello! My name is Svetlana Pashaeva, I am very pleased to welcome you on my website!
I am an artist-teddist, all of my products are made by myself in a single copy. Every bear has its own character, each in its own way unique. They are made of different materials: Italian viscose, German viscose Steiff-Schulte, artificial mohair, cotton. Bears eyes are glassy and hand painted. For bonding parts I use joints: cotter pins and washers. Clothes for bears I design, sew and knit by myself. I hope you enjoy my work, and you will find a wonderful friend here.
My childhood and youth I spent in the Irkutsk region. Ever since high school, I learned how to sew and knit. This exciting experience drew me so that creativity became an integral part of my life. I sewed doll dresses, designed, participated in various competitions of drawings and posters, and always occupied the top places. In 1989 I entered the Novosibirsk Pedagogical University on the faculty of graphic arts, and successfully graduated it with a diploma «Dolls in frame». Here I learned many arts and crafts – sculpture, painting, batik, embroidery, etc. After graduating, I got a job at a school with extensive learning of theatrical art # 90 in Novosibirsk. There I taught drawing, painting and housekeeping for girls. Here I first became acquainted with Teddy bears.
From 1995 to the present I live and work in Moscow, I continue to be engaged in creativity. In 2006 I strongly decided to relate my life with Teddy bears, and since then I do not leave this wonderful activity. Since 2015, I take part in the Hello Teddy exhibition in Moscow. I am an active participant in the «Master Teddy» contest held by the organizers of this exhibition. In 2018, together with Teddy bear Manya I won in the category «Fashion», and in 2019 I repeated my success with Teddy bear Michelle, winning again in the same category. Since 2019, I have started taking part in the Teddybär Total exhibition held in Münster, Germany. My works also took part in the Golden George competition. In 2020, Teddy panda Yongsheng was nominated for the final in the «Miniature» category, and in 2021 Teddy bear Richter in the «Teddys kreativ II» category was nominated for the final.
