>Beaded Venetian Angel Ornament

Beaded Venetian Angel ornament.
Bead embroidery on felt. 1″ x 3″ wide.

Over the weekend, I worked on a new item for my Etsy shop! I made a beaded Venetian Angel! My angel was inspired by my recent trip to Venice, Italy. I saw many religious paintings, sculptures, & frescoes featuring beautiful angels while I was there. I have always been intrigued by the possibility of angels existing among us, and when I went to Venice, it seemed that I could feel their presence as they looked down upon me! So, I thought to make a beaded angel holiday ornament! This piece consists of bead emboidery on felt. I used size 11 & size 15 Czech and Japanese seed beads. I also added a set of mesh wings and a millefiori bead that I purchased on the Glass Island of Murano. I finished the beadwork and now all I have to do is add a backing & list her in my Etsy shop! How do you think she looks? 🙂

I have also started making a second angel which should be finished soon. And, speaking of holiday items, CLICK HERE to check out my Peppermint Beaded Button earrings!

>Another Beaded Old English Sheepdog – Finished!

Thanks for all your comments on my last post, and thanks for the birthday wishes, too! Since some of you have requested to see my finished sheepdog pin, here she is! I estimate that this piece took approx. 10 hours to create since she requires very tiny size 15 glass seed beads! But, I think the extra effort is worth the results. This sheepdog is now listed in my Etsy shop! (Please click the pic for more photos!) I still have another one to finish, but I think I’ll take a break and get back to working on my beaded military tank first. So many things to bead, so little time! 😮

Bead embroidery on felt.
2.5″ x 1″ (6.5 x 3cm)

Here’s what I’m working on during this long weekend. Two more beaded Old English Sheepdog pins! My beaded sheepdogs are my best-selling item, so I feel I always need to have at least one completed! I don’t usually make 2 pieces at once like this, but I received a custom order request from the owner of The Divas pet portrait. She wants to start collecting my beaded pins! So, when I am finished, one will be reserved for my best customer, and the other will be listed in my Etsy shop. (Look for Rachel in my shop within a day or two!) And, speaking of custom orders, I also added a listing in my Etsy shop for commissioned pin/pendants. I love to create dogs and cats, but could also create beaded horses, parrots, fish, potbelly pigs or any other animal you may love. 🙂

Other plans for today include celebrating my birthday by going to the MFA’s Fall Open House! That’s all for now. Hope you are having a wonderful Columbus Day weekend! 🙂

>Beading a Jack O’Lantern

>

Thanks for all your comments on my last post. I liked the idea of earrings, but I finally decided to turn my set of beaded pumpkins into metal-free buttons! You can see more photos of them HERE. And, I guess I’m in a Halloween mood! Either that or I was too lazy to put away my orange seed beads because yesterday, I worked on a beaded Jack O’Lantern!

First, I cut out some felt. Then, I stitched on his face using size 15 black seed beads.

Then, after quite a few stitches and a few hours later, he is (almost) complete!

Something made me stitch beads in all different directions, and I really like how it looks. Kinda makes him look even scarier! He is larger than my last set of beaded pumpkins (1″), so I think he will be a pin. Now, all I have to do is add a pinback & some Ultrasuede! Look for him in The Lone Beader’s Gallery Shop! 🙂
