Papillon Bead

Papillon Bead

Although I have sculpted various dog breeds this is my first Papillon bead, it is hand-sculpted from polymer clay and varnish sealed. It is pierced vertically from top of head to bottom.

Size is approximate:
3/4" vertical (top to bottom)
1-1/4" horizontal (ear to ear)

Wonderful bead NanjoDogz!

I'm curious... is that bread named Papillon (the french word for butterfly) because it looks like a butterfly when its ears stick out? That was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw your adorable bead!

BeadedTail - thank you!

Dreameyce - thanks so much. Whenever you're ready, I'll be hanging around somewhere on the web :)

Cindy -- Thank you and yes, you are correct, French for butterfly, named for their beautiful ears!
