The last couple of days, I have been busy! I completed a commissioned piece (which I will show you soon). Then, I completed the reverse side of my beaded Boston fire hydrant.You will notice the nozzles that stick out. They are about 3/8″ tall. These water nozzles were created using the peyote stitch, and let me tell you, it’s not easy beading a circle out of cube-shaped beads! It kind of goes against nature, but I really like how it looks.😀

Next, I plan to stitch the two pieces of beadwork together somehow, so that it looks 3-dimensional.

Semi-beaded Boston fire hydrant. 4″ x 1.75″w (10cm x 4cm).

When it is complete, this fire hydrant will accompany my beaded motorcycle – with or without a parking ticket…😮

  1. >Thanks for all the comments everyone! Jams, I will have to look into British hydrants to see what you are talking about! Boneman, what a nice comment you left! Yes, some very talented beaders hang out here! =:)And, Audrey, I actually wasn’t planning to make a dog for this one… but could always add one at some point I suppose!😀

The danged comment box walked away from me, and when it came back, there was a picture of someone wearing my pax hat, my jacket, and…well…I guess we all have jeans, huh.But, it’s signed ‘Lisa’ so, I guess it isn’t me.Well, I was saying what a great camera you have to show us such cool pictures! They look like cubism art, sometimes.And I always enjoy seeing some of your commenters avatars, beadworks, themselves. Willow’s beautiful tree, Audrey’s incredible heart, and the one that has the landscape? I forgot the name, but the vision of the rolling hills, tile roofed houses….WOW! ALL of y’all are phenomenal beaders, I gotta say, and I’m not just blowing smoke up your….wait a minute.Uh-oh. Here comes that beaded dog, again!Watch out! Last time he came by, he lifted his leg and covered the hydrant in thread!Watch out! Ohhhhhtoo late.
