‘Pretty in Poodles’ Micro-Beaded Dog Collar

Long time, no post! For those who haven’t been following my beadwork on Facebook, here is my latest creation. A micro-beaded dog collar (or choker necklace) featuring 7 corded poodles in all different colors!

Each poodle was created individually by stitching tiny glass seed beads to felt 2-3 beads at a time. The poodles’ hair was made using Czech 1x4mm micro-bugle beads and 13/o charlottes. The hair is long beaded fringe which actually moves when you touch it, feeling silky soft! :D

After the poodles were beaded, they were then stitched together into the shape of the necklace. Closure is a sterling silver chain & lobster claw clasp. Beadwork measures approx. 10″ x 3″ (25cm wide x 7.7cm tall). Necklace fits 14″ – 16″ (35 – 40cm). Please view the Etsy listing for more details.

Fluffy Beaded Dog Pin

Today, I’d like to show you a quick pic of my latest custom order, a little beaded dog pin named Fluffy:)

A friend of mine sent me a few pics of Fluffy. Not knowing the breed, I worked from photos only. I came up with a sketch, cut out some felt and started beading. I used several different white, cream, and brown size 15 glass seed beads. The first layer of beadwork (above) is rather sparse, but the second layer more than makes up for it (below). I also added some beaded loops and fringe on the dog’s ears to add dimension. Complete, this piece measures approx. 3cm x 4.5cm.

How do you think Fluffy looks, and more importantly, what kind of dog do you think she is? :D
