This listing is for one MADE-to-ORDER bead-embroidered Lhasa Apso pin/ pendant! This cute little dog was created by stitching tiny glass seed beads to felt (2-3 beads at a time) using a strong nylon thread. Beaded fringe is layered on the dog's head & tail using size 15 seed beads. The beaded fringe actually moves when you to touch it, and reveals more seed beads beneath! Several colours of brown, gray, & smoky gold beads and a tiny glass taxidermy eye (for the nose) are used. Finally, a 3/4" pinback was sewn to the back. Piece is backed with Ultrasuede & signed by The Lone Beader. This is a unique gift idea for any dog-lover!
Media: 15/o Japanese glass seed beads
Dimensions: 1.25" tall x 1.5" wide (3.5cm x 4cm)
Includes one (1) hand-dyed 18" rayon cord w/ clasp so you can immediately wear your pin as a pendant! (colors vary)

If you are interested in a custom beaded pin which is a different breed (or different colour), please contact the artist for more details. Many breeds of dogs & cats can be created in the same manner if a photo is provided. Due to the nature of this fine craft, no two pieces of beadwork will be exactly alike.
