Your Local Artisans

Noble Bear Artistry is a small online business and creative entity that showcases the works of two brothers and their passion to create.

Always willing to try something new, Ryan is a professionally trained musician and self-taught artist. His passion for creativity flows across disciplines and mediums and has led him into the world of blacksmithing.

Starting with the basics of tool making and decorative hardware Ryan quickly developed a love for the craft. He is always dreaming up new projects and loves working on custom commissions that push the boundaries of his abilities. He is eager to try his hand at more sculptural work and historical weaponry.

Ian Berends

Holding a Mechanical Engineering Technology diploma from Northern Alberta Institute of Technology Ian’s passion for design and engineering is always growing. Since he first set eyes on a box of LEGO he has been turning his imagination into a reality.

He has significant experience with 3D printers, 3D modeling programs, computer numerical control and manual machining, but always comes back to crafting with his hands. Starting with pre-cut leatherworking kits, Ian’s skill has grown quickly over the years, and he now designs his own custom bags, cases and  takes custom commissions. He is excited to continue building his skills and is currently looking into shoemaking.

“I bought two keys chains from Nobel Bear and I am very happy with my purchase. The key chain provides an easy and comfortable leather handle to grab my keys. The leather is of high quality and craftsmanship. The stamp on the leather is great and stylish.”
