Custom Hand-Beaded Pet Portrait
Have a beautiful hand-beaded portrait of your pet created especially for you!
Our pets have been with us all through lockdowns, 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-made, hand-beaded keychain, pendant or framed picture 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 thought gift for someone special.

This will be a custom, hand-beaded pet portrait, designed and created especially for you. The photos in the listing show examples of the items I have created for others. I hand-bead all of my pieces at my home near Portsmouth, closely supervised by one or other of my cats, Ash & Cinders. Each hand-beaded item takes 6-8 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.
Looking for a unique memento of your fur baby? Then let’s get started!
Here’s what you need to know:
- After purchasing this item, please send me an email and tell me what you’d like. I will ask you to share several photos with me.
- You may opt to have a brooch, keychain, purse charm, pendant, hanging ornament, or a framed piece – just let me know your preference.
- I will share a design image / sketch with you prior to starting the beading process.
- It will take me 3-4 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 be backed with coordinating faux suede (if not framed), and meticulously edged with beads to create the finished piece.
- If a framed finish is chosen, your item will be carefully mounted and framed in a black 4″ x 4″ (10cm) acrylic box frame.
- Once complete, your beaded treasure will be carefully wrapped ready to give as a gift or as a treat to yourself!
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, although fishing twine is used in the creative process, ensuring the beads are attached firmly and will withstand normal day-to-day wear. Please note, bead colours may appear slightly differently on different computer or device screens, and in different lighting.
Everybody loves receiving pretty packages through the post, and if they’re prettily wrapped then even better! For a small additional cost, I can send your beautiful portrait wrapped in polka tissue with a pretty raffia ribbon tie. I will also attach a gift tag with your preferred wording – please advise at the time of ordering.
