Bruce Springsteen portrait in beads

I wanted a way to combine 2 of my passions — beadweaving and Bruce Springsteen, I so created this design to bring the 2 passions together in 1 piece.

Combining 2 Passions - Bruce Springsteen and Beadweaving

Bruce Springsteen portrait in beads

This portrait (inspired by the photo by Herb Ritts that appears on the cover of the biography written by Peter Carlin) measures 3″ x 4″ & uses more than 3700 beads, woven using 2-drop even count peyote stitch. I was amazed at the level of detail I got with only 6 colors of beads.

I will either frame it (most likely) or add peyote stitch loops at the top & hang it from a bar.
