I have several pieces in mind that I want to start working on, but most of them are pretty involved. Some of you already know this, but I’m leaving for Europe in about 2 weeks, and I’ll be gone for 3 weeks. So, I am hesitant to begin a piece of beadwork that will take me 2 months to complete.
With that in mind, I thought this would be the perfect time to bead something a little different. So, I sketched out this vintage 1970’s RCA television set. For someone who almost never watches TV anymore, you’re probably wondering why I chose a TV. For some reason, I’ve always had a love for vintage electronics, and just like everyone else, I have fond memories of watching cartoons as a kid=:)
This drawing measures approx. 6″ x 9″ wide, and my goals for this piece are fairly simple. Of course, a beaded TV should appear to be dimensional, but it will hopefully be interactive and functional, as well… I hope I can make my vision become a reality…
