Dragon mask by Rrkra Dragon mask by Rrkra
Had some Tila beads, wanted to use them, so this happened.
Me experimenting, again. Mostly circular brick stitch here.

Tried to make the mask hold shape better by using a string (or whatever it's called, not sure, in russian it's тросик). Will be useful, if I ever decide to make a full-size beadwork mask.
2nd photo shows where the string is.

Used bronze and black coloured beads (Toho and some of unknown origin), Tila and black triangles.

For :iconellygator:'s summer contest - "My Mask - My True Face".
It's a mask for those times, when I only support the conversation because I'm too polite to turn and leave. Dragons live long. They have time, so they can waste some on listening. And no-one can tell they aren't interested by looking at them. (Reptilian faces aren't very expressive...)
So yeah. Mask on, don't show you don't care, and use the first suitable opportunity to fly away leave. Everyone's happy.


I'm thinking of making it into a necklace. Or a handflower. Doubt it would be wearable, but who cares :XD:
