Semi-Beaded Truck, Turkey Day, & Black Friday Sale!

Here’s an update on the progress of my beaded Peterbilt semi- truck. After beading the American flag grill, headlights, and cab, I created two beaded lights using 12-gauge precious metal wire. I stitched a ball of felt to the ends of them, and bead embroidered orange Delicas around the felt. I wasn’t sure this would work at first, but it turned out kinda cool!

And, even though working with wire is not my forté, somehow I managed to create 2 side view mirrors by stitching liquid silver bugle beads to precious metal wire.

Currently, the truck  consists of 4 pieces of beadwork + 2 wire lights. Nothing will be stitched together until all of the pieces have been created.

I still need to add some lights on top of the cab, as well as a beaded doggie passenger:) How does it look so far?
