Dear friends, I am thrilled to announce that I will now be offering custom framed beaded pet portraits in my Etsy shop!
Here is the first piece I have created – a bead-embroidered Yorkshire Terrier portrait. This little dog was created with tiny Japanese glass seed beads. It was hand-stitched using needle & thread. Beadwork was then sewn to an Ultrasuede background which was mounted in an 8″ x 8″ white shadowbox frame.
This piece is currently available and ready to ship. Please click the photos for more details. Truly a unique keepsake which will be passed down for generations to come!
Dear friends, this month, I am thrilled to announce that my beadwork has been featured in the Sept./Oct. issue of AKC Family Dog Magazine! Please click the pic below for a link to view the digital edition on Facebook. My beaded Yorkie is on page 10! :D
Also, check out my latest custom order – a beaded Blue Roan English Cocker Spaniel pin. This piece was created by stitching tiny glass beads to felt. Tiny beaded fringe was layered to make the dog’s ears & body look dimensional. Beaded fringe actually moves when you touch it. This design can be customized to look like your English Cocker Spaniel!

I’ve recently started to expand my line of beaded Yorkshire Terrier jewelry. Here is my first pair of tiny bead-embroidered Yorkie earrings w/ sterling silver posts:
These earrings were inspired my popular beaded Yorkie pin/pendant. I made them by stitching tiny Japanese glass seed beads to small pieces of felt. The beads are layered to create dimension and realism. The dog ‘hair’ is tiny beaded fringe that actually moves when you touch it. Earrings measure 22mm x 15mm and weigh just 1.5 grams each. The beadwork is extremely detailed for its size. This pair is currently available for sale in my Etsy shop. Please click the photo above for more details:)
I am also running a Labor Day Sale. Now through September 2, 2013, all animal beading patterns and bead embroidery kits are 10%-off the original price. If you are thinking of making holiday gifts for friends and family, this is a great time to start:) Please visit the Beading Kits & Patterns section in my shop for more details. Thanks for your interest in my beadwork & have a wonderful weekend! :)
