Friendship In A Bottle

I' ve recycled my empty Toho seed bead bottles and am using it to package my Beaded Friendship bracelets that I'm selling in my shop.  Thank you to Merle of Merle Reads and Tupper's Perch for giving me suggestions on how to take the sticky off of these plastic bottles!

The View is Incredible

Don't you think the view is incredible?  This is the back-side of a little doxie that I was asked to make and this uninhibited doggy was kind enough to provide me with a photo to work from.  I giggled and smiled when I got this special request and was gung-ho to start but the project turned out to be more difficult than I anticipated.

I wanted to capture the pup's big feet and cute tail and re-worked the design several times before finally deciding to make these features pop by adding a second layer of beads over these areas.

Here is the side view:

I hope I was able to capture the cute side of this special dachshund.
