Okay, they aren’t exactly chrome, but my DeLorean‘s beaded wheels certainly look like it compared to the rest of the car!

I stitched on one side of a sew-on snap fastener for the center of the wheels, metal bugle beads for the spokes, and glass half bugles to create the rim. I don’t know if I’m finished with this part or not… The rims are not a perfect circle, but neither are the vinyl tires… I also used some black twisted bugle beads for the undercarriage, and I worked on the front bumper a bit more. These little details are time-consuming, but necessary.
