Expressing Gratitude through Bead Embroidery

Dear friends, I have been thinking about the subject of gratitude lately. I often stay up late doing bead embroidery feeling incredibly grateful that I have discovered a craft which brings me so much joy. I am also grateful for all of the amazing friends I have met along my creative journey, all of the places I have traveled, and for each and every opportunity that has come my way.

I have also decided to lower prices on all beading patterns and kits on Etsy, Amazon, and Google Books. Beading patterns are now priced at $0.99 and $1.99 across the board, in English and Spanish. Now you can learn how to create some of my most popular beaded dog pins and pendants for a fraction of the original price!

Love These Beaded American Eskimo Dog Earrings!

Dear friends, just a quick post to show you my latest design – beaded American Eskimo earrings! I just love how these turned out! These dangly Eskie dog earrings were created by stitching layers of tiny glass seed beads to tiny pieces of felt. Beadwork was backed with Ultrasuede. Earrings hang from sterling silver ear wires fearing a tiny black Onyx bead.

This item was originally a custom order request, but since they match my beaded American Eskimo pin pendant, I have decided to list them as made-to-order on Etsy and Amazon. Also, if you’d like to see beadwork progress photos or a photo of me trying on this pair, please check my Facebook or Instagram pages and/or the product listing. Thank you for your interest! Back to beading! 🙂

Bead Embroidered Basset Hound Brooch

Beaded Basset Hound dog jewelry pin Bead embroidery etsy Amazon Handmade Boston artist free shipping

Dear friends, a new beaded Basset Hound pin pendant is now available for sale in my Amazon Handmade store. This pin was created by stitching tiny glass seed beads to felt 2-3 at a time. The dog’s floppy ears were beaded in a peyote stitch to add movement and realism. Ears measure approx. 2cm long – they actually move when you touch them! Seed beads were also layered over the dog’s body to accentuate his wrinkles:) A 1″ pin is sewn to the back, as well as a custom made bail. Pins are backed with Ultrasuede & signed by The Lone Beader. This item is ready-to-ship.

And, for a limited time, I am offering FREE SHIPPING within the USA on the purchase of any beaded dog pin, pendant, or jewelry item on both Amazon and Etsy. If you are interested in a custom beaded dog pin or portrait, please use the Contact form above. Thank you for your interest in my beadwork! 🙂
