Thank goodness for the other dog people in our lives. They present us with so many gifting occasions to splurge on pet posters, portraits and personalized pup accessorizes. If personalized gifts are your favorite to give, look no further than this irresistible birthday or holiday gift idea (it’s never to soon too think about Mother’s Day): Wearable pet pins and portraits made from dazzling dimensional beads. Constructed by stitching glass beads to felt with stunning results, these pet-perfect gifts are the work of self-taught Massachusetts artist, The Lone Beader.

The Lone Beader’s intricate beadwork ranges from cityscapes to spaceships, but Woof Report’s favorites are her charming custom pet pieces. Available for commission on a first-come, first-serve basis, all she needs is the dog’s photo or information about any special coloring to get started. Then, The Lone Beader creates a work of art from a piece of work. Now that’s a birthday present.
