‘Poodle in Public Garden’ Beaded Cuff Bracelet

I have been busy the past few weeks. I am preparing for a week long Newbury Handmade Market next month, so I started restocking some of my most popular Etsy items, such as beaded Pugs and Poodles.. Then, inspiration hit and I made my first beaded Poodle cuff bracelet! :D

This 2″ bracelet was made by stitching tiny glass seed beads and vintage German glass flowers and leaves to felt. Beadwork was mounted onto a blank metal cuff and lined with Ultrasuede. If you would like to view the progress of my bead embroidery, please see this album on Facebook.

I decided to call this piece ‘Poodle in Public Garden‘ because it reminds me of all the adorable dogs I always see walking in the Boston Public Garden. It is currently available for sale in my Etsy shop.

Beaded Cat Pin & Small Business Grant Contest

This week, I finished working on a special custom order. One of the pins I made was a beaded orange & white cat named Butterscotch. He was made by stitching Japanese size 15 seed beads  and 13/o charlottes to felt. I layered the beads to create a furry texture. He measures approx. 5.5cm x 5.5cm. Do you like him?

The second is a Brindle Pit Bull pin pendant. This is the same design as my beaded Blue-Nose Pit Bull. The texture of this piece was created by layering tiny seed beads over other seed beads in several different browns. How do you think it looks? You can view progress photos of these pieces on Facebook or Instagram..

Custom Beaded American Eskimo Angel Pin

Beading has been keeping me busy! Last week, I received a custom order for a very special beaded dog pin – an American Eskimo Angel.

beaded Native American Eskimo Angel Eskie dog spirit pin etsy beadwork bead embroidery

I created this unique Eskie brooch using 11/o and 15/o seed beads, as well as tiny 13/o charlottes in several different whites. I created the dog’s head first, then the wings. I stitched both pieces of beadwork together once everything was complete. The most difficult part was stitching the tiny fringe on the dog’s mane – I had to use pliers to pull the needle through the beads! I think the results are worth the effort.. It sort of looks like Native American bead embroidery to me. What do you think? I believe the spirit of this beautiful dog will now live on forever:)

Please check out more progress photos on my Facebook page. If you are interested in a custom beaded angel pin in memory of your favourite dog, please contact me through my Etsy shop. Custom orders will be accepted on a first come first serve basis. Thanks for your interest in my beadwork!
