My latest custom beaded pet portrait is complete! This piece was inspired by a dear cat named Tux.
She was created by stitching tiny glass 15/o seed beads to layered felt. I used several different shades of black, gray, and white to create her. After she was completed, I stitched her to a bright turquoise blue Ultrasuede background. And finally, I stitched tiny glass leaves and Czech glass flowers all around her as if she were laying in a spring garden. This beadwork was mounted in an 8″ x 8″ shadowbox frame.
Tux was a special companion to a man who recently passed away as a result of Lou Gehrig’s disease, or ALS. May they both be remembered forever. ❤

Dear friends, it seems that Norwegian Forest Cats are popular this month! I recently received another order for a white one- this one has blue eyes! This piece is a pin which can also be worn as a pendant. I used Japanese size 15 seed beads and 1 x 4mm micro bugle beads to create this piece. Check out the finished beadwork in this amateur Facebook video I posted below. Please Like, Comment, and/or Share this video on social media. I am planning to post more videos in the future!

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.)
