My Newest Bead...

I know. You just never can tell what I'm going to write about, right? I love being a little unpredictable.

I recently purchased a new bead for my Troll bracelet. I found this Corgi bead on Etsy at NanjoDogz shop, and just had to have it! (By the way...She makes beads in other breeds, too. Just click on her shop name to she what she has available. If you don't see your breed, send her a message and ask.)
Nancy sculpted it from polymer clay, tinted it with just the right colors, and sealed it with varnish for protection.  It's lined with silver metal core so it slips nicely along my bracelet.
She even stamped a little paw print on the back. She also included care instructions. Unlike the glass beads, the clay beads shouldn't be submerged in water.

Other than that, her instructions to treat it with TLC really weren't necessary, because I'll treat it as carefully as each of the beautiful, handmade beads I've received from my dear friend, Marion. Marion even gave me the gorgeous silver acorn that always stays on my bracelet along with her paw print bead.
I think one of the cutest things about this little bead is that, if I look at it from just this angle, I even get the "Disapproving Corgi" look. It makes me smile every time.

Oh Donna, that's just too precious. I'm sorry I haven't been by in a while, but I've been very involved with taking care of my mom. It's a 24/7 situation and I literally have to answer to a bell almost every hour. I'm very blessed to be spending this time with her, but it is exhausting, and with my chronic pain issues....well it's just not the best of circumstances.

I miss chatting with you.

Hugs,
Meri

Absolutely precious. Love the Corgi stare. She has a cream Labrador retriever, too. Might have to put a whisper in Santa's ear :-)

Love your bracelet! I'm a Pandora fan but I do have a few Troll. From what I understand the creators of Pandora and Troll are brothers. Very similar but I love the way Troll has a story for every bead. Love your doggy!
