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

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

This week, I had a chance to work on my bead-embroidered Russian painting.. I am working on a small section which will be the door just below the Kremlin clock tower.
I have used all kinds of beads: cubes, bugle beads, hex cuts, Tilas, and 11/o and 8/o seed beads so far.. If I had known about Half-Tila beads, I probably would have used some… Oh well, maybe next time.. :(
This small beaded section measures 10cm x 12cm.
I still have a long way to go on this piece.. What do you think? :O
16″ x 17″
Please find me on Facebook for all the latest updates!
