I came across the etsy shop of elJan. Jan does amazing beadwork - my chin pretty much hit the floor when I saw it. The pictures speak for themselves, and I highly recommend visiting her shop to look at the closeups of these pieces! Wow!
She says she can do this to your guitar!
My Little Beaded Pony.
Even if you don't know anything about beading (which I don't) you can imagine the time and artistry required for pieces like these. I wonder how many tiny seed beads are on that pony!
