Dear friends, it has been a busy month! Here is the latest custom beadwork I have created – a black beaded Pomeranian dog pin pendant. This piece is now available as made-to-order on Etsy. Click the image blow to view the listing:
My beaded dog pins can also be worn as pendants. Each order includes a soft leather cord with sterling silver clasp. Matching earrings can also be made upon request! :)
Also, some exciting news. I will be starting a very special commissioned bead-painting very soon! Please check my Facebook and Instagram pages for more updates. Thank you for your interest in my bead embroidery! :)
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

Last night, I went to the Cambridge Art Association’s 14th National Prize Show reception. Works in all mediums were selected by Caitlin Doherty, Curator & Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, Michigan State University.
Only 79 pieces out of 1200 entries were selected for this show. I am absolutely thrilled that my beaded painting, Radio City, is one of them! This piece consists of bead embroidery on canvas. You can view Radio City May 15- June 25, 2015 at University Place Gallery in Harvard Square.
University Place Gallery:
124 Mt. Auburn St. Cambridge MA, 02138 Hours: Monday through Friday 9:00am to 6:00pm • Saturday 9:00am to 1:00pm.
The other half of the exhibition is installed at the Kathryn Schultz Gallery located at 25 Lowell St., Cambridge, MA. There you can also check out the Small Wall Project.
Every 4-6 weeks, original small works will be shown here. Of course, these pieces are available for sale. Many artists will donate 50% of the sale to the Cambridge Art Association so they can continue to expand their gallery space.
My beaded Afghan Hound portrait will be shown here for the next few weeks. Go check it out if you happen to be in the area! If you are interested in a custom beaded dog portrait of a different breed, please visit my Etsy shop or contact me through Facebook. Thank you for your interest in my beadwork! :)
