Have a beautiful hand-beaded portrait of your pet created especially for you!
They’ve been with us all through lockdown, either joyous at our near 24-hour presence (if they’re dogs), or slightly peeved at having their nap times interrupted (if they’re cats)…
Either way, commemorate their cute fluffy faces with a beautiful, custom, hand-beaded brooch, keychain or pendant in their image!
I’d love to work on a personalised pet portrait of your pampered pal, something that is truly meaningful to you. A pet portrait would also make a perfect thoughtful gift for your BFF and their best furry pal!
This would be a custom hand-beaded portrait, designed and created especially for you. The photos above show examples of the items I have created for others. Looking for a unique memento of your fur baby? Then let’s get started!
I hand-bead all my items at my home near Portsmouth in the UK, closely supervised by one of my two cats, Cinders. Each hand-beaded item generally takes 4-5 hours to complete (sometimes many more), but I love the order and rhythm of the bead-embroidery process, sewing each individual bead to create unique and beautiful pieces.
Here’s what you need to know:
* After purchasing this item, please email me direct and tell me what you’d like. I will ask you to share several photos with me too!
* You may opt to have a brooch, keychain, purse charm, necklace pendant or hanging ornament if you’d prefer – just let me know. Or for an additional cost, I can mount and frame your pet portrait.
* I will share a design image or sketch with you prior to starting the beading process.
* It will take me 2-3 weeks to design and hand-bead your item (from the date of receiving your photos), but I will keep you updated with progress along the way.
* Your item will normally be backed with coordinating faux-suede, and meticulously edged with beads to create the finished piece.
* Once complete, your beaded treasure will be carefully wrapped ready to give as a gift or as a treat to yourself (go on – you know you deserve it!).
Your item will be hand-crafted especially for you on a made-to-order basis, and will be handmade with care in a smoke-free and cat-friendly environment. Your item is intended for decorative purposes only. Please note, bead colours may appear slightly differently on different computer or device screens, and in different lighting.
DewCatDesigns’ pieces are generally made for occasional use only. Remove your item before going to bed.
Do not wear your item whilst swimming or showering. Do not expose your item to water.
Avoid exposure to hairsprays and perfume which could damage or stain the finish on your item.
To clean, periodically wipe with a dry, lint-free cloth.
