Assembling a Beaded Cathedral

After a long hiatus, I am finally getting back to working on my Russian bead-painting

beaded St. Basils Cathedral Moscow Russian art Beadwork bead embroidery artist painting

I stitched custom sterling silver crosses to the top of the onion domes (10 in all). Then, I wire-wrapped each spire to complete the look. I also cut out a few more layers of felt to help build up a few of the chapels… It took me several hours to stitch everything together.. Now, my beaded St. Basil’s Cathedral is complete! What do you think? I think its time to begin the next phase! :O

I’ve recently started to expand my line of beaded Yorkshire Terrier jewelry. Here is my first pair of tiny bead-embroidered Yorkie earrings w/ sterling silver posts:

Bead Embroidery Tiny Beaded Yorkie Yorkshire Terrier Earrings Beadwork Etsy

These earrings were inspired my popular beaded Yorkie pin/pendant. I made them by stitching tiny Japanese glass seed beads to small pieces of felt. The beads are layered to create dimension and realism. The dog ‘hair’ is tiny beaded fringe that actually moves when you touch it. Earrings measure 22mm x 15mm and weigh just 1.5 grams each. The beadwork is extremely detailed for its size. This pair is currently available for sale in my Etsy shop. Please click the photo above for more details:)
