Beary Cute Bears by Penny Zenglein
Beary Cute Bears are created by international, award winning teddy bear artist, Penny Zenglein
Penny creates "Art You Hug and Hold" with her collectible teddy bears from 2 1/2 inches to 22 inches tall. Miniature bears are made of upholstery velvets in a variety of colors, and bears 5 inches and up are made of high quality imported mohair in a wide variety of colors, lengths and textures. Penny also creates one-of-a-kind heirloom bears out of recycled mink garments. She is very critical of her work and strives to make each bear a quality piece of workmanship filled with love and strict attention to detail. Penny also recently designed a series of bears for LL Knickerbocker, Inc.
Each Beary Cute Bear comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, and bears 5 inches and larger have a real penny placed inside the body dated the year the bear was born. Each of Penny's creations has a laminated tag which reads, "See a Pennybear and pick it up, and all of the day you will have good luck!"
As a collector of both Teddy Bears and Wee Forest Folk figuerines, Penny opened Beary Cute Bears Gallery in San Luis Obispo, CA in January of 1998. There you will find Penny doing what she loves most, creating new bears, doing an emergency bear repair in her teddy bear hospital, or sharing stories with visitors about teddy bears or Wee Forest Folk.
The gallery also offers a wide variety of other handmade artist bears, Boyd's Bears and Bearstones, Cottage Collectibles, Gund, Hermann, World of Miniatures, Deb Canham Artist Designs, Steiff, R John Wright, Stuff Your Own Bear, Wee Forest Folk, hand carved redwood bears and other bearaphanalia.
