Thanks for all the sweet comments on my last post. I do feel my heart is on the mend. Keeping busy definitely helps! While I was working on finishing my heart-shaped purse, I received an Etsy order for 3 beaded Keeshond pins! :O
I will say this is probably the most challenging beaded dog I have created so far. I used 10 different colors of size 15 seed beads, as well as a few 13/0 charlottes. I also used tiny bits of thin wire to create ‘spectacles’ – the key marking on this breed (although I’m not sure you can really see them). After completing the first layer of bead embroidery, I began on the 2nd layer by creating more dimensional ears. Then I added quite a bit of long beaded fringe!
How do you think it looks? Hope I’ll be able to recreate it 2 more times!
