Also, check out my latest custom order – a beaded Blue Roan English Cocker Spaniel pin. This piece was created by stitching tiny glass beads to felt. Tiny beaded fringe was layered to make the dog’s ears & body look dimensional. Beaded fringe actually moves when you touch it. This design can be customized to look like your English Cocker Spaniel!

Assembling a Beaded Cathedral

After a long hiatus, I am finally getting back to working on my Russian bead-painting

beaded St. Basils Cathedral Moscow Russian art Beadwork bead embroidery artist painting

I stitched custom sterling silver crosses to the top of the onion domes (10 in all). Then, I wire-wrapped each spire to complete the look. I also cut out a few more layers of felt to help build up a few of the chapels… It took me several hours to stitch everything together.. Now, my beaded St. Basil’s Cathedral is complete! What do you think? I think its time to begin the next phase! :O
