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.
Recently, I have been receiving requests for my beading patterns to be made available in foreign languages. This is something I am working on.. I am pleased to announce that my Jack Russell Terrier beading pattern is now available in Russian language. It is a PDF file which can be downloaded at my Etsy shop. Please click the photo to view the listing:
That’s the news for now. Please check my Facebook page, Instagram, or download my free iPhone app for more updates! Thanks for your interest in my beadwork! :D

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.
This piece can also be customized to include the beaded dog breed of your choice. If you would like to order your own custom ‘Public Garden’ beaded bracelet, please see my Etsy shop for more details.. or use the Contact form above:) Thanks for looking! :D

Over the past week or so, I have been busy working on an order for 4 custom beaded pet pins.. Here are the first two dogs I have completed:
The first is a beaded black Labrador Retriever pin pendant. This one was made using tiny size 15 seed beads 13/0 charlottes. The ears & tail were made using a freeform peyote stitch technique. This piece measures about 4.5cm x 7cm wide…
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..
If you are interested in a custom beaded pet pin, please contact me for more details.. Next on my list: two orange & white beaded cats! :D

I have received an order for 4 custom beaded pet pins (check out the brindle Pitbull I started making on Facebook or Instagram).. and I accepted a commission to create a small bead-painting (progress on this coming soon)..
If that wasn’t enough, I am still working on my Russian bead-painting, plus I plan to start writing a new beading pattern soon.. If there are specific bead embroidery patterns, kits, and doggie designs that you’d like to see in the coming year, please post them in the comments..
