This piece was pretty popular in the blogosphere while I was working on it, and it ended up being published in the June 2007 issue of Bead & Button magazine. It was also published in a Russian magazine last year! Well, I decided to bring the Divas back, and create my favourite dogs as beaded pins or pendants!
Here is the first OES I created. Her name is Rachel. I used all size 15 seed beads, a button for her nose, and taxidermy eyes (although you probably can’t see those)! She is made from 2 layers of beadwork. I worked on her for approx. 2 days, and she is still not finished. She needs a backing, but I have decided to list her in my Etsy shop anyways. Customers can pick whether they would like her finished as a pin, a pendant, or a sew-on applique for use in one of their own handmade projects! Personally, I think she would look cool as a pendant on a silk ribbon! She will definitely attract attention wherever she goes! Please click the pic to see more more photos:
Which Diva is your favourite, and which one do you think I’ll make next?? 😀
