Crafty Geeks: Pixel Perfect Bead Sprites
Pixel Perfect Bead Sprites is a new business that brings some of your favorite characters from movies, video games, and comic books and gives them an 8-bit effect. These small pieces of artwork are created by taking Pearler beads and putting them onto a small pegged frame. Jeremy takes many different colors of beads to create his designs and when the design is finished, he uses an iron to fuse the beads together to create a lasting, finished piece.
The finished bead sprites are durable and can be used to create any manner of items such as magnets, pins, or home decor, just to name a few. Pixel Perfect's sprites aren't just movies or video games. Jenna, who just happens to be one of my very best friends, has created sprites related to The Beatles including their apple logo. They also take requests.
The sprites are affordable and are made with a lot of love and geekery. There is only the facebook page now, but hopefully Jeremy and Jenna will get set up on Etsy or Twitter soon so they can join the geek community over there. I look forward to more of their creations!
For questions on inventory or prices you can email Jeremy or like their Facebook page!
