Combining 2 Passions – Bruce Springsteen and Beadweaving
by Holly Kurzman.
(Pézenas, (Occitanie) France)
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.
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.
