>Time Traveler – A Beaded Trilogy


Thanks to everyone for your interest in my beadwork, and for following my blog! This week has been big for me. It marks the completion of my Time Traveler pieces. This is a pop art series of mixed media works featuring a beaded DeLorean Time Machine. My inspiration came from the 1985 film Back to the Future. Here is the trilogy in its entirety – which piece is your favourite?

I worked on these 3 pieces almost exclusively for the past 5 months, so it feels like quite an accomplishment to be finally finished! Of course, I am never really finished. I have spent the past couple of days taking photos of my beadwork, and adding them to several websites including TheLoneBeader.com, Facebook, Myspace, and Squidoo.

So, what will become of this series? A DeLorean owner on Twitter already asked me if these pieces would be available for sale at The Lone Beader’s Gallery Shop on Etsy. He wanted to let some other DeLorean owners know about it. I would love to show them altogether in an art exhibit before they are sold to a private collector. However, in the meantime, if someone is interested, the price is available on request. I think each piece can stand on its own, but it would make more sense (to me) to display them altogether. So, I’m not sure if I should offer them only as a set or also as separate works. I guess I will have to think about that…What do you think?? Until I decide, these works will be hanging on the wall in my studio! 😀

  1. >I’m sorry I’ve been absent for so long, but what a treat to come back and see how the pieces turned out. They look beautiful, and are truly amazing! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!Miachelle

  2. >They look amazing! Congrats on finishing….they are a wonderful accomplishment. I think each piece is strong enough to stand on its own…but they definitely have more of an impact together. The middle one is my favorite. I love the colors used on the canvas and how the piece is literally coming out of the canvas. Congratulations! you should be proud!

  3. >I think they are all fantastic, but the third one is definitely my favorite! That’s great that you have offers already, it’s great to have all your hard work recognized. Can’t wait to see what your next project will be!

  4. >Hmm, I actually prefer the first and last ones LOL. I especially like the way the background changed between the two.Great work as always, LB. I hope someone picks up the whole set

  5. >Thanks, Vicki! :)And, thanks Ju! I felt the same way about the second piece when I was painting the canvas… It was really a struggle for me! But, I am proud of how it turned out. I really would like to keep them together, because the 2nd one might be lonely without the others! 😉

  6. >Great work!! The middle one is my favorite also, even though it was my least favorite as you were working on them. Try to keep them together as a set for sure!!

  7. >I think I like the first one best? But I LIKE them all! As far as selling them together or apart, would an option be to offer them as a set for X amt of time, then split them?

  8. >My fav is the one in the middle! The rest are good, but not being a big car buff, well, I can’t recommend what you should do with them. You know in your heart what would be best. Search yourself to know better.
