A Beaded House in Ohio..

Dear friends, recently I finished beading my first house portrait. This piece was a special commission.

The house still stands in Steubenville, Ohio – a former steel town where my father’s family lived and worked. My father’s uncle actually built this house many years ago..

This piece was created by stitching tiny glass seed beads to felt 2-3 at a time using strong nylon thread. Miyuki Tila beads were used for the sidewalk, Swarovski crystals were used for the yard light, and tiny seashells were sewn at the edge of the driveway.. The beadwork itself measures approx.  5″ x 7″.. It was carefully mounted and framed in an 8″ x 10″ shadowbox frame.
