Dear friends, this week I received a new delivery of seed beads, so I put together ‘Beads Only’ packages for use with my Yorkshire Terrier beading pattern. Each package contains all 10 colors of Japanese size 15 seed beads needed to complete a beaded Yorkie pin or pendant. Please view this Etsy listing to order.
Also this week, I finished making a custom beaded Tibetan Terrier pin pendant. This piece is a one-of a-kind work of art! You can view progress photos of this piece on my Facebook page. If you are interested in a custom beaded pet pin or pendant, please contact me through my website or my Etsy shop.
And to anyone who is interested in custom framed beaded pet portraits, I will be offering this option in my shop very soon. Please contact me for details. Thank you for your interest! Back to beading:)

Due to popular demand, I have decided to offer ‘Beads Only’ packages in my Etsy shop. These will contain the 15/0 seed beads needed to create some of my most popular doggie designs. Beads for the Westie and Pug patterns are currently available for sale in limited quantities. (Beads for the Yorkie pattern will be made available soon!) Complete beading kits containing all materials needed are also available. Please see my shop for more details.
I have also been listing some new items, with more on the way.. Here is my latest – a Blue Beaded British Police Box pendant, which bears a striking resemblance to a famous British TV time machine. ;) The earrings were so popular, I decided I had to make a matching pendant, too:) Do you like it? :D
I have also decided to have my beading patterns translated to Spanish language. I have been receiving so many requests for this, that it cannot be ignored. It may take a while to accomplish this, so please stay tuned! That’s the news for now. Happy beading! :D

Dear friends, I hope you are enjoying the summer! I have been busy beading! I recently made a custom beaded French Bulldog pendant for a customer who lives in Tokyo. This design is similar to the English Bulldog pendant that is currently listed in my Etsy shop. Do you like him? :D
I have also been updating my shop with a few new items. Here is a pair of pink Pug Love sterling silver heart earrings. These are ready to ship. They go with my Pink Pug pendant! :) Perhaps I should make a purple Pug next? :D
I also made a new beaded Westie pin! This one is wearing a red leather collar. Click the photo to view more details on Etsy.

I’ve recently started to expand my line of beaded Yorkshire Terrier jewelry. Here is my first pair of tiny bead-embroidered Yorkie earrings w/ sterling silver posts:
These earrings were inspired my popular beaded Yorkie pin/pendant. I made them by stitching tiny Japanese glass seed beads to small pieces of felt. The beads are layered to create dimension and realism. The dog ‘hair’ is tiny beaded fringe that actually moves when you touch it. Earrings measure 22mm x 15mm and weigh just 1.5 grams each. The beadwork is extremely detailed for its size. This pair is currently available for sale in my Etsy shop. Please click the photo above for more details:)
I am also running a Labor Day Sale. Now through September 2, 2013, all animal beading patterns and bead embroidery kits are 10%-off the original price. If you are thinking of making holiday gifts for friends and family, this is a great time to start:) Please visit the Beading Kits & Patterns section in my shop for more details. Thanks for your interest in my beadwork & have a wonderful weekend! :)
