>Beaded Rear Fender

During the past couple of days, I have been busy preparing some entries to future art exhibits, but I have also been battling a head cold, so haven’t felt completely up to speed. Despite that, I still managed to get some beadwork done. Above you can see that I used matte black seed beads in size 8 and size 11 for the rear fender of my beaded motorcycle. It seems I am so close to finishing this motorcycle, yet still I am so far away… 😮

P.S. Thanks to those who have answered the poll in my sidebar.
I really appreciate your thoughts! 🙂

  1. >It’s great! I like the matte black seed beads for the fender. I hope you are feeling better! I sure can see why you’d have a head cold…it looks like it has been SO COLD your way!!!~LisaP.S. Voted! Wish we could have picked more than one. I think all the small items right now is a good thing, but I still like your idea of a beading kits too! 😉

  2. >Thanks for the comments everyone! Yes, I do fantasize about beading a full-size bike or vehicle someday, but I don’t have the space to do that in my small apartment. I have seen plenty of photos of beaded cars, they are definitely attention-getters! 😀

  3. >This is just AWESOME!!! Have you ever considered embellishing a full sized motorcycle? I actually toy with the idea of beading or somehow embellishing my Volvo. The idea horrifies both of my kids…all the more reason to consider it….

  4. >It’s looking really great!! will book mark it and show the hubby when he gets home. I had left some color suggestions on your other post that were his. He’ll be interested in what colors you have chosen.
