Now that I’ve finally finished my beaded motorcycle, it’s time to show you the commission I completed last week. (Thanks to Woof Report!)

Above is a photo of Kian, an Australian Labradoodle from Hawaii. (Isn’t he the cutest dog you have ever seen?:) I was unfamiliar with this dog breed, so I did a little research. I learned that Labradoodles are a crossbred mix of a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle! Here is the custom beaded dog pin I created for Kian’s owner:

Bead embroidery on felt. 1.5″ x 1.5″ (3.5cm x 3.5cm)


Kian’s hair is a beautiful apricot colour, but I didn’t want him to look too orange, so I used a mixture of light topaz and silver-lined apricot seed beads, as well as browns, black, and pink. I created this unique ‘curly’ texture by mixing size 15 & size 11 seed beads. Kian’s ears are also tiny fringes that actually move!

This pin is also a pendant which can be worn on a necklace. I am really proud of how it turned out. (I hope Kian’s owner likes it, too!) Hmmm… I wonder what kind of dog I’ll bead next! 😀
