Here’s an update on the progress of my beaded Peterbilt semi- truck. After beading the American flag grill, headlights, and cab, I created two beaded lights using 12-gauge precious metal wire. I stitched a ball of felt to the ends of them, and bead embroidered orange Delicas around the felt. I wasn’t sure this would work at first, but it turned out kinda cool!
And, even though working with wire is not my forté, somehow I managed to create 2 side view mirrors by stitching liquid silver bugle beads to precious metal wire.
Currently, the truck consists of 4 pieces of beadwork + 2 wire lights. Nothing will be stitched together until all of the pieces have been created.
I still need to add some lights on top of the cab, as well as a beaded doggie passenger:) How does it look so far?

For the past few days, I’ve been busy beading my semi- truck. I used Preciosa rhinestone squaredelles for the head lights. I stitched them on end which really helps to create dimension! I also beaded several layers of metallic Delicas around them to keep them together. How do you think it looks so far? Next, I will start working more detailed parts, like side-view mirrors and exhaust stacks.. :O
Besides this project, I have been preparing for my first bead embroidery workshop. I am also currently celebrating 200 sales in my Etsy shop! FIRST TIME CUSTOMERS use coupon code OCT200 to receive 10% off any order now through October 31, 2012. Thank you so much for your interest in my beadwork! 😀
