Custom Beaded Black Lab & Pit Bull Pins

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 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..

Holiday Deadlines for Custom Beaded Gifts on Etsy

It seems the holiday season is upon us now – at least here in the retail world. Last December, my Etsy shop was VERY busy, especially the week before Christmas. So, this year, I have posted new holiday ordering deadlines to help customers place their gift orders in a timely fashion.

Any order placed after these dates will be considered a rush order and will incur an additional fee. Bead embroidery kits & beading patterns also make great gifts – these are ready to ship.

The Making of a Beaded Maltese

Here’s a sneak peak at how I make my beaded dog pins & pendants:

bead embroidery artist felt dog Maltese shape Shih Tzu etsy beading beadwork

First, I sketch out my design. Then, I cut out Lacy’s Stiff Stuff and a few layers of felt in different shapes. I try to envision my sketch in relief, and I decide on the shapes of felt based on that vision..

Next, I stitch on a little glass nose – for this piece, I used special 2mm glass doll eyes. Then, using tiny Japanese glass seed beads in size 15, I bead the entire piece, following the lines in my sketch.

When the first layer of beadwork is complete, I start another layer of beaded fringe. Long beaded fringe is stitched in between the rows of the first layer of beadwork. This layering adds dimension, realism, and movement to the piece. I also add any additional detailing (such as the beaded pink bow this Maltese is wearing:) and I finish by stitching on an Ultrasuede backing.
