Just a quick note today announcing my Veteran’s Day Sale on Etsy. For a very limited time, all bead embroidery kits and patterns are 15% off the original price now through Monday, Nov. 11, 2013, 11PM EST. Click HERE to view the sale section.. Get a head start on your holiday beading projects today!
Also, check out my latest custom order! Bead embroidered Oakland Athletics sterling silver earrings! These were a bit of a challenge to make due to the size and shape – they measure approx. 1″ x 1″… If you are interested in custom beaded Boston Red Sox earrings made in the same manner, I would be happy to make them on custom order, but I might have to make a pair for myself, first!

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?
