Barb took a vintage steam iron and covered every bit of it in brightly-colored beading. The iron is mounted slightly raised to give a view of its bottom plate. A custom-made mahogany base provides a resting place for the iron.
Status: This fine piece has been pressed into a private collection.
One side of the Beaded Steam Iron starts a warning, “Mama Says...”
“Don’t Touch,” completes the warning. This view shows the temperature gauge reading, “Hot.”
Mounting the Beaded Steam Iron at a slight angle on its mahogany base gives the iron a sense of motion.
Tipping the Beaded Steam Iron back allows you to see the beaded flame design on the bottom of the iron.
