Casie on the Rocks - Finished!

I was camping in northern Michigan (well, it was actually Mid-state, in West Branch, but anything past mile market 200 on I-75 equates to being "Up-north") for the last 8 days. What great weather - not too hot, not too chilly, just wonderful.


My beads and I did a lot of work this week. I finished "Casie on the Rocks" while sitting in the sunshine, watching Casie and Molly check out all the dogs that walked by their jail - er, pen.

I'm pretty pleased with the way that this piece turned out - I might do a little more on the rocks, but then again, I might not. I used an adaptation of the Nepal or Biva chain to add textural leaves to the piece.

What a great picturing of your dog in beads. Looks great.

this dog has so much perkiness and personality--you really captured that! I like it!

I post this on the main blog, but here again to make sure you got it. Cassie is beautiful, remarkable how you brought her to life in beads.

Thanks everyone - especially to the Lone Beader - your "waiting for Dad" is the reason that I started beading this piece. I think it might be my favorite!

This is a lovely piece. I like all the different colors in the back ground, it gives it some beautiful depth. Also I can just tell that you dog would like to move around in that picture.

I love this piece. Cassie looks great with all the texture around her. I feel like I'm looking at a picture of her, I think you've captured personality.
