From Photo to Pandora Bead

 I get some fun requests around the holidays and this was one of them.  One of my past customers had bought for her Mom, some large hole sculptural beads that were significant to her for Mothers' Day last year. 

Well, I received a frantic email a few weeks before Christmas telling me that her Mom knew every gift that she was going to receive and that she had an idea for a surprise.  Her Mom had just gotten a new puppy and she wanted to add to her Mom's Pandora bracelet with a bead.

Meet Katie.  Isn't she a cutie.  She's a Shih Tzu  
I love seeing everyone's pets.  They're all adorable and some day I'll tell you a funny story about one of them.

Katie is a very tiny bead.  She has the large hole bead that fits that specific type of bracelet, but she is only about 8 mm wide.  So when you see the large picture of her, imagine how tiny I was trying to work to get in some of her coloring and the general feeling of the new puppy.

Here's to cute pets, surprise gifts and of course custom orders which make people happy.                                                                                    

If you'd like your pet made into a bead, please contact me through my etsy shop, and we can discuss it.
