Beaded NYC Taxi Cab

Beaded NYC taxi cab. Bead embroidery on felt. 10" x 3" (26cm x 8cm).

Today, I finished beading my first NYC taxi cab! I used many different colour glass seed beads in size 11 & 15. There are also some size 10 triangles on the rear windshield. And, as you can see, the felt is not completely beaded! There is some bare felt showing through! I hope this helps convey that the car is speeding down the street in front of my beaded Radio City Music Hall… What do you think? :O

  1. Wow, it really does look like the car is speeding, great shop. This project is just amazing. Love it!

  2. I just love how wonderfully you stylize such common things like cabs and buildings! Cab is too gorgeous, feels like it is driving hugely fast and will disappear behind the nearest corner in a blink… Wonderful work, Diana :)

  3. Very cool. I love your work in this genre the best.
