Dear friends, I am back to working on my Russian bead painting. Here is the latest progress – I have finished beading a large tree. The tree was created by first sewing together a felt foundation with several holes in it. I used a combination of bead embroidery and freeform peyote stitch to create a leafy texture which can be seen through when you move them around. Below is a sneak peak of what it might look like in the finished piece. This portion of the beadwork (tree + cathedral) measures approx. 12″x 15″. If you would like to see more photos of the progress of this piece, please visit this Facebook photo album.

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? 😀
Besides that, I have been trying to prepare for the holidays: shopping, shipping, cooking, jotting down ideas and goals for the New Year… Until then, I will be running a HUGE Year End Sale on both Etsy and Amazon Handmade. Nearly ALL Ready-to-Ship items will be 15% off, no coupon code needed. Sale runs December 25 – January 15, 2017. Enjoy and have a very Merry Christmas!

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.
