My Two Dogs...Woof!

This week I made two dog charms.

The first charm was a special order that I made based on photos and a drawing that the customer provided.  It was a bit scary because it was my first "real" model and my model, Haylee, is a beautiful dog!  Here is the completed design.




This is my second doggie charm.  I did it because doxies are so cute, though I have a hard time spelling the breed's name...D A C H S H U N D.

2 New Beaded Charms

Black Kitty was recently sold.  It so happened that I created this pattern but never got around to beading it up when a very nice customer requested a black kitty!

She left me a nice feedback:
These are the cutest kitties ever! My sister will love these for her birthday. Thank you for such friendly service and fast shipping. Highly recommended seller! A+++!
...hooray!



I specifically made this Hina Matsuri (Doll's Festival) charm for Girl's Day, celebrated on March 3.  However, I think it would also be a great gift any time of the year.


Thanks for stopping by and have a happy happy Monday!  <---oops, it's not Monday.  Have a great Saturday :)

Free Advertisement

My bigger little one is into illustrations and animation.  She thoughtfully made this cute advertisement for me...payment in hugs!


Handmade Cute's advertisement by Flareheart, made at DoInk.com



My mom asked me to make an advertisement for what she sells on Etsy. My mom sells beaded charms. Yes, it does have a little picture of Flareheart on the bottom. It's kind of like my trade mark thing. O well. This took over an hour and I could do better but it's all i can do for now. Thanks for watching! (I did use props but they were my props)

A Kawaii St. Patrick's Day Kitty Charm

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a little kitty pattern based on my logo design.  The kitty is now complete and listed in my shop.   This kitty charm is made with green and white transparent frosted seeds beads and is sporting a good luck shamrock.  Just something fun and kawaii for St. Patrick's Day.

New Design and Free Pattern: Hibiscus

Good Morning bloggy friends.  Today I wanted to share with you a brick stitch Hibiscus Flower pattern that I came up with while watching TV.  It's not the symmetrical pattern that I usually find myself making.  I started with scribble blob and slowly it was transformed into a flower.  I hope you like it.


The total project takes 182 beads to make 1 flower.  I used size 11 Toho seed beads in brown and silver-lined pink to create my Hibiscus.  The completed flower measures about 3 cm. by 2 cm.   I attached my beaded flowers to ear wires.  Here it is...


If you bead up this flower, please let me know.  I'd love to hear from you!
Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
