Also, check out my latest custom order – a beaded Norwegian Forest Cat pin. This keepsake pendant was created by stitching several shades of size 15 seed beads to felt 2-3 at a time. Then,  I layered tiny 1x4mm Czech glass maco tube beads to create realism. I also used a tiny freshwater pearl for the nose. Below you can see how this pin looks when worn as a pendant!

Beaded Dachshund & Australian Cattle Dog Jewelry

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!
