A tribute

So I've been beading these whippet/greyhound earrings.
I usually watch tv when I bead.
Well there I am beading and watching tv and I look over at my sweet 14.5 year old whippet Skeeix.
Then it hits me. I must do a tribute to that beautful old face.
You know the one where the color starts to fade and go white around their eyes.
So here are a couple of pairs of earring saluting all those beautful old whippet/greyhounds faces.
Thank you Skeezix.

Earrings are up for sale in my Etsy shop

I also do custom orders.

Don't ya just love...

Wonkey ear'd whippets.
Meet Maribella.
One of my favorite things about whippets is when their ears are all askew.
She is needle felted in a very doggy pose.
Maribella measures a mere 5.5 inches long.
She wears a very girly girl beaded(by me of course) collar.

She is completedly needle felted from 100% wool and has onyx bead eyes.

Her coloring is red fawn highlights using Copic markers.

Maribelle is available for purchase in my etsy shop

Thank you so much for looking.
