There is a new blue beaded poodle pendant listed in my Etsy shop! This piece is very tiny – measuring just 3.5cm x 3.5cm. I used size 11/o and 15/o seed beads to create this poodle’s curly hair. Wear this piece as either a pin or a pendant. This adorable poodle pin is now available for sale at my Etsy shop HERE. This design can also be made in black, white, brown, gray, pink, or purple. The perfect gift idea for your Valentine, or for anyone who loves miniature poodles! :D
I finally finished working on my little beaded heart-shaped purse just in time for Valentine’s Day! :D
This purse was a custom order through my Etsy shop. It’s the first purse I have ever made! :D
The design was inspired by a vintage Valentine & features a beaded white cat & Scottie dog. They were created using Japanese size 15 seed beads, size 13 charlottes & micro-bugle beads. The dog’s collar features Preciosa’s genuine Czech crystal rosemontees.
The front panel of the purse is completely beaded & the back panel is personalized:)
The purse is completed with a glass beaded chain and an Ultrasuede lining.
This one-of-a-kind purse measures 14cm x 14cm & took nearly 40 hours to create from start to finish. Soon it will be making the flight to London, England – a city I absolutely love! Wish I could go too! :D
Last week, I beaded the entire front panel of my heart-shaped purse -ironically while suffering from my own broken heart:( It is so difficult to do beadwork when all you can see are tears :'(
First, I stitched my beaded cat & Scottie dog to the Ultrasuede. Then, I stitched on a few different shades of 11/0 Czech glass seed beads slowly working my way around the heart. To add even more depth to the piece, I then stitched on red Japanese Delicas (with aurora borealis finish) over top of the Czech seed beads.
This took quite a bit of time to bead, but I love the results. My heart, however, will require quite a bit more time.. :(
