PRCOM-July 13 – What is a Minky Bear?A Minky Bear is a hand-made teddy bear made from recycled vintage mink fur and created by the owner of Beacon's Glow Collectibles.
Beacon's Glow Collectibles, an online gift and collectibles retail store specializing in dolls, teddy bears, and collectible figurines (http://www.beaconsglow.com/), will now be carrying Minky Bears (http://www.beaconsglow.com/Minky-Bears-s/1694.htm), which are hand-made teddy bears made from vintage mink fur.
The beauty of real furs is truly compelling.It is always so soft, shimmery, silky and lush.To see real fur one wants to touch it and revel in the splendor of it.That is why the owner of Beacon's Glow Collectibles, Brenda Mize, decided that she would like to undertake the creation of these gorgeous heirloom mink bears. Once a Minky Bear is picked up, it is hard to put down.
Every mink fur used in the creation of a Minky Bear has been recycled. In using recycled mink furs, Brenda has learned to show respect for those animals that society has now learned to save and protect from such a fate. And in making teddy bears, it is the perfect way to extend the life of each fur coat while also creating an heirloom piece that can be treasured for years to come.
Each Minky Bear is a one-of-a-kind (OOAK) teddy bear entirely hand-stitched and is five-way jointed using the Cotter pin-disc method.All bears have black German glass eyes and hand-sculpted Polymer clay noses.
Additionally, each face has been meticulously scissor-sculpted to give each teddy bear its own unique personality.
Minky Bears are filled with a mix of old-fashioned wood wool excelsior (still used in many Steiff Bears even to this day), and wool blend poly.And just a touch of steel shot is added to give the bears their perfect weight.
To help preserve each teddy bear's heirloom quality, each vintage mink teddy bear has been lined for durability.Bear paws are made from ultra-suede material. Each Minky Bear wears a cord around his/her neck with a Swarovski crystal heart and pearl accents.
Please check back often as additional Minky Bears will be added to the Beacon's Glow Collectibles as time progresses.Each mink teddy bear has a distinct look and personality owing to the fact that they are entirely hand-made, and no two furs are exactly the same.
