Last week, I started working on something completely new: a beaded lady walking her pink poodle! The poodle is VERY tiny – 1″ x 1″ (2.5cm x 2.5cm). I used Japanese size 15 seed beads & tiny pink freshwater pearls, as well as a 1mm glass eye for the dog’s nose.
The lady measures approx. 6cm tall x 4cm wide. Her arms are very skinny – only 3mm wide! I used a combination of size 15 seed beads and 13/o charlottes. I will say it wasn’t easy to bead these tiny pieces because there is no fabric to hold on to while beading. I agree that her face does look a bit strange (maybe because its beaded?), but I think that given her tiny size, she will look just fine from a distance. How do you think she looks? I have one more tiny piece to bead, then I will connect everything together. Perhaps I should use a thimble this time! :O
