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

Semi-Beaded Kremlin

Dear friends, it has been awhile since I posted any progress on my Russian bead painting.. I guess I have been busy working on Etsy orders! :) Here are a handful of photos which I have previously posted on my Facebook page:

I am stitching tiny glass seed beads and vintage crystals to my gray felt Kremlin. So far, the beadwork measures 40cm wide x 24cm tall. How do you think it looks so far? Next, I will work on the Kremlin clock tower. Please follow me on Instagram for more updates! Thank you for your interest in my bead embroidery! :)

Bead Embroidered Westie Pet Portrait + Spring Sale!

Happy Spring! There is a new beaded pet portrait available for sale in my Etsy shop. A West Highland White Terrier!

Beaded Westie West Highland White Terrier Framed Pet Portrait Etsy Beadwork Artist Boston Spring Sale

This cute little dog was created by stitching tiny glass seed beads to felt (2-3 beads at a time) using a strong nylon thread. White beaded fringe was layered using Japanese size 15 seed beads. The beaded fringe actually moves to reveal more seed beads beneath! Several different shades of white, gray, black & pink beads were used. This pooch is also wearing a tiny sterling silver heart charm on his collar! Beadwork was sewn to a piece of dark blue Ultrasuede, and mounted in an 8×8″ white shadowbox frame. Piece is signed on the matte and it is ready to hang! If you are interested in a custom beaded pet portrait of a different breed, please view my Etsy shop for more details.
