Dear friends, I hope you are enjoying the summer! I have been busy beading! I recently made a custom beaded French Bulldog pendant for a customer who lives in Tokyo. This design is similar to the English Bulldog pendant that is currently listed in my Etsy shop. Do you like him? :D
I have also been updating my shop with a few new items. Here is a pair of pink Pug Love sterling silver heart earrings. These are ready to ship. They go with my Pink Pug pendant! :) Perhaps I should make a purple Pug next? :D
I also made a new beaded Westie pin! This one is wearing a red leather collar. Click the photo to view more details on Etsy.
Recently, I have been receiving requests for my beading patterns to be made available in foreign languages. This is something I am working on.. I am pleased to announce that my Jack Russell Terrier beading pattern is now available in Russian language. It is a PDF file which can be downloaded at my Etsy shop. Please click the photo to view the listing:
That’s the news for now. Please check my Facebook page, Instagram, or download my free iPhone app for more updates! Thanks for your interest in my beadwork! :D
The past few days, it has been extremely hot here in Boston, and I have been very busy! I am preparing for a week -long visit to Newbury Handmade Market. I will be selling some of my beadwork there from July 11-17. I have made a few new items for the event, including a tiny blue & gray beaded Poodle pendant! This poodle was made using size 11 and size 15 seed beads. It measures 3.5 cm x 3.5 cm. This poodle can also be made in other colors upon request. Please click the pic to view more details:)

This week, I found the time to create a new beaded dog pin – a Lhasa Apso! These sweet dogs lend themselves well to beading because they have long beautiful flowing hair. For this pin, I used several different colors of Japanese size 15 seed beads as well as a glass eye for the nose. I layered some beaded fringe on the dog’s head & tail adding just the right amount of visual interest!
If you follow my Facebook page, you’ll know that I listed this piece for sale at my Etsy shop late last night. Much to my amazement, this pin sold in just a few hours, so I relisted it as made-to-order for anyone else who might like one:)
I worked on my Zazzle shop a bit more this week, as well! It seems that artsy iPhone & iPod Touch cases are big sellers these days, so I made these available in new designs. Check out my ‘Beaded’ Great Blue Heron iPod Touch Case, as well as my ‘Beaded’ Rudy’s Dream iPad Case! So, if Santa forgets to bring you a case for your new mobile device, now you’ll know where to get one:)
That’s the news for now. Happy holidays, everyone! :D
I am thrilled to announced that there are now new ‘beaded’ Radio City Music Hall iPhone, iPad, & iPod cases listed for sale in my Zazzle shop! I do believe this is my favorite beaded painting & Zazzle design thus far. It’s sleek, black, modern, and suitable for both men & women. I have also created a Blackberry case for those who have not made the switch to iPhone yet. There are also t-shirts, tote bags, postcards, and coffee mugs. Something for everyone! I hope you’ll stop by and take a peek:)
Also, please check out the gold Beaded Yellow Labrador Retriever pin I just listed in my Etsy shop. This design is also available in black or chocolate brown upon request. If you are interested in a beaded dog pin which is a different breed, please contact me for more details. Thank you for your interest in my beadwork!
