Dear friends, I have been busy working on yet another custom order! Here is my latest – a large beaded Leopard brooch.. This is my first wild cat pin!
After working on a sketch, I transferred the image to a piece of stiff beading foundation and cut it out. Then, I cut out several more pieces of felt which would make the body of the cat appear to be in relief. After stitching these felt pieces together, I began beading the cat’s face. This piece is larger than usual, so it was a bit easier to get some detail in the cat’s face and nose. I used at least 8 different color seed beads as well as tiny glass eyes for the face.
By the time I started the body, I was using just 5 colors of seed beads. Two different shades of gold, black, transparent black, and a transparent cream color. When the Leopard’s body was beaded, I layered some matte brown beads to mimic the spots on the animal’s back.
I stitched wire to the back of the Leopard to stiffen his legs and tail, then I stitched Ultrasuede and a pin back to reverse side of the piece..
This piece is oversized. It measures approx. 3.5″ wide x 2.25″ tall… What do you think? 😀
Dear friends, I have created a new doggie – a beaded Rainbow Poodle pin pendant! Here is a peek at how it was created:
I have layered several felt shapes and stitched them together. Then, I stitched on a tiny glass nose. For the dog’s hair, I beaded short 2-bead stacks on its head and tail.
The dog’s body is made up of short 3-bead lazy-stitches which are very close together. This gives the piece the desired texture. I had wanted to make a rainbow poodle for awhile. I hope it makes you smile:) Please click the pic to view this item on Etsy..

My Etsy shop has been very busy lately! Last week, I received an order for two beaded Black & Tan Dachshund pins. Here is a photo of my design:
I used Japanese size 15 Charlottes, so this piece really sparkles! It’s difficult to photograph, but the dog’s ear is floppy and really moves when you touch it. I also strung seed beads onto a thin sterling silver wire for the tail! This design is now available for sale in my Etsy shop🙂
Also, this week, I finished a new custom order – a beaded Australian Cattle Dog pin pendant! My customer emailed me a photo which I used to create a template. I then cut out a felt foundation which I used to stitch seed beads to.. I used Japanese size 15 seed beads for the entire piece except the eyes. For those, I used size 11 seed beads and tiny 1mm glass doll eyes. To finish the piece, I added a thin sterling silver chain for the collar. Do you like it?
This Australian Cattle Dog design will not be available for sale in my shop, however, I would be more than happy to create a custom beaded pin, pendant, or framed portrait of your pet based on one of your favorite photos! These items make great holiday gifts; they are cherished keepsakes which will be treasured for many years to come. Please visit my Etsy shop for more details regarding custom orders. Thank you for your interest!
