Dear friends, I have some exciting news! I have been invited to be a guest speaker and beading teacher at the San Diego Bead Society & you are invited to attend! Monthly meeting takes place at Mingei International Museum on April 16, 2016 at 10am. Please view the Events page for more details:)
Beading class takes place Sunday, April 17, 2016 in Del Mar. You will make a beaded poodle pin, which can also be worn as a pendant! You will create a layered felt foundation, do bead embroidery using Delicas, as well as add texture by using the backstitch and stop stitch techniques. This class is suitable for beginning beaders and can be made in the color of your choice. Please see the San Diego Bead Society website for more details, class registration, and directions. Hope to see you there!
Dear friends, I would like to show you my latest design – beaded Afghan Hound sterling silver drop earrings! These match the beaded Afghan Hound pin pendant which is listed in my Etsy and Amazon Handmade shops.. This pair sold almost immediately, so they are now listed as made-to-order with several different color options. Do you like them?
Also, I am thrilled to announce that I have finally reached 700 sales in my Etsy shop! (This may have something to do with the fact that my shop has been mentioned on French website madmoiZelle.com.) I plan to celebrate all next week by going on vacation. Both of my shops will remain open for business, but please keep in mind that beadwork orders will not be filled until the week of February 15, 2016. If you have any questions or custom order inquiries, please use the Contact form anytime, and I will get back to you as soon as possible:)
Please visit my Instagram and/or Facebook pages for international beady posts while I’m away. Also, mark you calendar for my upcoming show in Harvard Square. More details on that when I return. Thank you for your interest in my bead embroidery!

Dear friends, I am busy working on some new designs for this year. The first one came to me as a custom order for beaded tricolor Cavalier King Charles Spaniel drop earrings and matching pin pendant. The earrings measure about 1″ x 1″ and hang from a sterling silver earring which features a clear Swarovski crystal bead. Earrings and pin pendant are listed as made to order on Etsy and Amazon Handmade. These can also be made in Blenheim, Ruby, and Black & Tan colors upon request. Please follow me on Instagram or Facebook to see what I make next. Thanks for looking!
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!
Dear friends, I am finishing out 2015 by working on some projects which have been on my work table for awhile. Here is the latest – a new gray beaded Puli brooch. This little dog was created by stitching beaded fringe over top a layer of size 15 seed beads. I used tiny clear micro bugle beads and black thread for the fringe. This piece is ready to ship and is currently listed in my Etsy shop. Click the pic for the link..
Also, just a quick reminder, all ready to ship beaded dog pins, jewelry, beading kits, and beaded artworks will be 15% off on Amazon Handmade and Etsy. Sale ends Jan. 3, 2016. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (hint hint)! Thank you for your interest in my beadwork! Happy 2016, everyone!😀
