Dear friends, I hope your New Year is off to a great start! We received quite a lot of snow here in Boston so I have been staying in and doing beadwork! I have also added a few new items in The Lone Beader’s Boutique on Zazzle. Check out my new Lone Beader Definition slouchy t-shirt and hoodie dress! I have had this ‘definition’ posted on my website for over 10 years now. After reading many comments and emails, I have realized that many of you can relate..
Now, you can express yourself and tell the world that you love to do beadwork without saying a word. Wear (alone or with leggings) to bead shows, bead retreats, and definitely while beading! Also, please check my Facebook and/or Instagram pages for more items coming soon! Thanks for looking! 🙂

This week, I found the time to create a new beaded dog pin – a Lhasa Apso! These sweet dogs lend themselves well to beading because they have long beautiful flowing hair. For this pin, I used several different colors of Japanese size 15 seed beads as well as a glass eye for the nose. I layered some beaded fringe on the dog’s head & tail adding just the right amount of visual interest!
If you follow my Facebook page, you’ll know that I listed this piece for sale at my Etsy shop late last night. Much to my amazement, this pin sold in just a few hours, so I relisted it as made-to-order for anyone else who might like one:)
I worked on my Zazzle shop a bit more this week, as well! It seems that artsy iPhone & iPod Touch cases are big sellers these days, so I made these available in new designs. Check out my ‘Beaded’ Great Blue Heron iPod Touch Case, as well as my ‘Beaded’ Rudy’s Dream iPad Case! So, if Santa forgets to bring you a case for your new mobile device, now you’ll know where to get one:)
That’s the news for now. Happy holidays, everyone! 😀
I am thrilled to announced that there are now new ‘beaded’ Radio City Music Hall iPhone, iPad, & iPod cases listed for sale in my Zazzle shop! I do believe this is my favorite beaded painting & Zazzle design thus far. It’s sleek, black, modern, and suitable for both men & women. I have also created a Blackberry case for those who have not made the switch to iPhone yet. There are also t-shirts, tote bags, postcards, and coffee mugs. Something for everyone! I hope you’ll stop by and take a peek:)
Also, please check out the gold Beaded Yellow Labrador Retriever pin I just listed in my Etsy shop. This design is also available in black or chocolate brown upon request. If you are interested in a beaded dog pin which is a different breed, please contact me for more details. Thank you for your interest in my beadwork!
