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! :)
Happy Spring! There is a new beaded pet portrait available for sale in my Etsy shop. A West Highland White Terrier!
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.
Also, it’s time to celebrate Spring with a 15%-off sale in my Etsy shop! Now through April 5th! All ready-to-ship beaded dog jewelry, bead art, pet portraits, beading kits & patterns will be on sale for a limited time – now through Easter Sunday only. Thanks for looking! :)
