Austin, TX, September 20, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Beacon's Glow Collectibles, an online gift and collectibles retail store specializing in dolls, teddy bears, and collectible figurines (http://www.beaconsglow.com/), is now offering their customers Charlie Bear limited edition prints and greeting cards by the UK photographer Charlotte Bird.
These Charlie Bear limited edition prints, as well as greeting cards, feature Charlotte Bird's signature Victorian-era fairies intermingled with adorable Charlie Bear teddy bears. Just recently Charlie Bears introduced 6 of these matted prints and they are the same images as used in their greeting cards. Edition sizes for the prints are limited to 495 pieces and each comes with a certificate on the back.
Charlie Bears are greatly gaining in popularity in the United States and have been so as well in the UK and Australia since their introduction in 2005. Each collectible teddy bear truly has their own personality. Crafted of either high-quality plush, mohair, or alpaca, each bear is five-way jointed and many have wobbly joints which adds to their hug ability. (Mohair and alpaca teddy bears come from small limited editions whereas the plush are open editions.) Each bear has its own special name and many of these names are selected from the suggestions of collectors. This teddy bear company is truly a family-run business with all members of the family involved in its daily operations. Charlotte Morris (aka Charlie), founder of Charlie Bears, always insures that each bear will be checked to see that it feels good, cuddles well, and additionally has the right personality. Charlie Bears are truly "Bears with Personalities."
Charlotte Bird got into photography at the young age of 7 as her father was an inspiration to her. He was also an avid photographer and printer. Charlotte was able to process her photos as there was a darkroom in the cellar of their house located in the UK. Additionally, her Dad used to read both nursery rhymes and stories with fairies in them to her as a child. This instilled in her a fascination with the magic of fairies. It was not until after her children had grown that she became serious with her photography. Charlotte's photographs continue to encompass a Victorian-era style and consistent fairy theme.
The collaboration between Charlie Bears and Charlotte Bird has already piqued the interest of arctophiles (from the Greek words meaning 'bear' and 'affection'). Teddy bear collectors can now purchase the limited edition prints or frame the greeting cards on their own. It is anticipated that this collaboration will continue to grow as time goes on.
