New Beaded Afghan Hound Portrait

Dear friends, I have just listed a new framed pet portrait in my Etsy shop! A white Afghan Hound! This piece was created by stitching tiny Japanese size 15 seed beads to felt. Beadwork was mounted to a hot pink Ultrasuede backing and framed in a white 8 x 8″ shadowbox frame. Please click the pic for more details:

Also, check out my latest custom order – a beaded Norwegian Forest Cat pin. This keepsake pendant was created by stitching several shades of size 15 seed beads to felt 2-3 at a time. Then,  I layered tiny 1x4mm Czech glass maco tube beads to create realism. I also used a tiny freshwater pearl for the nose. Below you can see how this pin looks when worn as a pendant!
