We give two harmonic mappings of the open unit disc onto bounded convex domains that extend continuously to the unit circle as $2$-valent local homeomorphisms onto the boundary of the image domains such that the valency of one mapping is $6$ and of the other is $8$. This provides a negative answer to a conjecture of Sheil-Small.
Keywords: Harmonic mappings, p-valend functions.
