New Beaded Miniature Schnauzer Pin

Dear friends, check out my latest custom order – a beaded Miniature Schnauzer pin pendant. This piece was inspired by photos of my customer’s dog named Savy.

First, I cut out some felt shapes and stitched them to a piece of stiff beading foundation. Then, I stitched on eyes and a nose. These are special glass doll eyes which are attached to a wire. The eyes measure 1-mm, and the nose is 2-mm. Yes, I could also use a drop bead for the nose and seed beads for the eyes, but I really like the glass doll eyes because they are more round.

Next, I began stitching tiny Japanese size 15 seed beads to create the dog’s face. The face is always a challenge because it convey’s the dog’s personality. It is also a very small piece of felt – just 3/4″ tall x 1/2″ wide!

Once, I complete the face, the rest of the dog’s body seems easy to bead.. Until I add a second layer of beaded fringe..

To learn how to do layered beaded fringe, check out my Yorkshire Terrier beading pattern on Etsy.. It takes precise stitching, and a LOT of patience, but I think the results are worth it.. What do you think? :)

Tiny Beaded Pocket Beagle

This weekend, I listed a brand new beaded dog pendant in my Etsy shop – a tiny Beagle! This piece was inspired by Miss P, the adorable little dog who won Best in Show at this year’s Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show!

Beaded Dachshund & Australian Cattle Dog Jewelry

My Etsy shop has been very busy lately! Last week, I received an order for two beaded Black & Tan Dachshund pins. Here is a photo of my design:

I used Japanese size 15 Charlottes, so this piece really sparkles! It’s difficult to photograph, but the dog’s ear is floppy and really moves when you touch it. I also strung seed beads onto a thin sterling silver wire for the tail! This design is now available for sale in my Etsy shop :)

Also, this week, I finished a new custom order – a beaded Australian Cattle Dog pin pendant! My customer emailed me a photo which I used to create a template. I then cut out a felt foundation which I used to stitch seed beads to.. I used Japanese size 15 seed beads for the entire piece except the eyes. For those, I used size 11 seed beads and tiny 1mm glass doll eyes. To finish the piece, I added a thin sterling silver chain for the collar. Do you like it?

This Australian Cattle Dog design will not be available for sale in my shop, however, I would be more than happy to create a custom beaded pin, pendant, or framed portrait of your pet based on one of your favorite photos! These items make great holiday gifts; they are cherished keepsakes which will be treasured for many years to come. Please visit my Etsy shop for more details regarding custom orders. Thank you for your interest!
