Beaded Paintings & Pet Portraits 

Commissions for beaded paintings or pet portraits will be accepted on a first-come first-serve basis. If you are interested in a custom beaded painting, please contact me for an estimate. Once an agreement has been reached, buyer is required to pay 50% of the estimate. Final payment is due when item is complete. Custom pieces can take anywhere from 2-10 weeks to complete depending on size & intricacy of the beadwork. Each piece is created by stitching tiny seed beads to felt 2 or 3 at time using needle & strong nylon thread, then the beadwork is stitched to a painted canvas. Standalone beadwork (which is not stitched to a canvas) can also be created. The progress of your piece may be documented on my blog or Facebook page. I own all rights to the beaded images I create.

Custom Jewelry 

If you are interested in a custom beaded dog brooch, pendant, or earrings, payment for the full amount must be made in advance. Please note that custom beadwork takes time to create, and will usually ship approx. 1-2 weeks from purchase date. Due to this fine craft, no two pieces of beadwork will be exactly alike. Seed bead colors may vary slightly.

Care Instructions for Beadwork

Beaded paintings on canvas are ready to hang. There is no need for framing although it is recommended. To preserve your piece, keep away from direct sunlight. To clean your piece, dust with feather-duster, or a very lightly dampened cloth only if necessary. Do not use any household cleaners, as the chemicals will break down the threads that hold the beads in place. With a little bit of care, your piece will last many years to come.. If you have any other questions regarding commissions, please use the contact form above.. Thank you for your interest!
