Two Beaded NYC Taxi Cabs

Beaded NYC taxi cab bead embroidery NYC street scene

2nd beaded NYC taxi cab. Bead embroidery on felt. 13" x 4" (33cm x 10cm).

Today, just a quick post to show you the 2nd beaded taxi cab I’ve been beading. I worked on this during the past couple of days. I think it is mostly complete, although I still have a bit more work to do on the tires. I also noticed that there is more felt showing through on this car than there is on the previous car. I’m not sure I like that, so I may decide to stitch on some more seed beads here and there.. How do you think it looks in the big picture – next to my beaded Radio City Music Hall? 😀

  1. Dear Diana,

    I cannot tell you how happy I am, thank you so much for this wonderful news, for all your hard work you put to create the tutorial and for sending it to me, it is fantastic! I was so happy to get a chance to read about your workflow, it is an honor to learn from you, such a talented beader. You developed such a distinctive stile and techniques like no other bead artist out there: it is a pleasure to follow your updates, see your creations.

    Your new cab is remarkable, both of them fit very well with the whole Music Hall, organic blending 🙂 Truly feels as if they are driving on the high speed and will disappear from the picture in the next second, I am fascinated how well you could capture this motion.

    Thank you very much for this honor be a winner and this fantastic gift of Cat tutorial! I love the cat 🙂
    My Best Wishes and lots of inspiration to you,
