Dear friends, thanks to this month’s feature in AKC Family Dog Magazine, my Etsy shop has been keeping me busy! Check out the latest custom beaded dog pin I have created:
It’s a beaded Choodle (Chi-Poo) – or Chihuahua Poodle mix in blonde and apricot colors. This designer dog brooch was created by stitching tiny glass seed beads to felt 2-3 at a time. I have also added a tiny sterling silver heart charm on his collar. Here you can see how this piece looks as a pendant:
And, here is the photo my customer sent for inspiration. Ozzy the Choodle looks just like my beaded pin.. or perhaps it it’s the other way around? What do you think? ;)

Dear friends, these days, I am working on a special commission – a bead-embroidered house portrait!
First, I completed a sketch which I used to create a paper template. I used the template to create several different felt shapes of the house. I layered the felt cutouts and stitched them together.
I began beading the garage and windows using size 15 seed beads and Miyuki Tila beads. I am using several browns and grays so far.
Above, you can see that I finished beading the rest of the house. And, below, I have layered some seed beads over the house to create visual interest (although I don’t think the camera can pick up this detail).
I have also begun to work on the yard. I stitched half-Tila beads along the wall next to the driveway, as well as up the stairs. How do you think it looks so far? Please check my Facebook and Instagram pages for more updates. Thanks for your interest in my beadwork! :)

Today, I am off to the post office to ship out my famous blue psychedelic beaded bus entitled The End! This piece has just sold at my Etsy shop!
To make sure it arrives safely on the West Coast, I am double boxing it and packing with a lot of bubble wrap. This was such a fun piece to work on and I will be sad to see it go, but I am happy it has found a new home. What kind of vehicle should I bead next? :D
