Beaded Bulldog & Cocker Spaniel Christmas

Dear friends, ‘Tis the season for beaded holiday gifts! During the past couple of weeks, I have been super busy beading Etsy orders! Here is the latest custom order I have created – a chocolate Cocker Spaniel pin pendant.

This piece was created by stitching tiny Japanese glass seed beads to felt 2-3 at a time. Once I beaded the entire piece of felt, I did some layering on the dogs ears and legs. I basically just added long beaded loops which really add movement to the piece! The dog’s ‘hair’ really moves when you touch it, too! Do you like it?

I also created a fawn-colored English Bulldog pin.. This one is a bit more sparkly than usual. I used a mix of Japanese size 15 seed beads and size 11 Delicas. I also used special tiny brown doll eyes. Don’t you just think he’s the cutest? 😀
