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:

This is so beautiful and so witty a choice that it deservs to win! :D Because yes, dragons have time so they can be polite. We probably even amuse them I think. ;)

All the entries deserve to win (I'm particularly fond of the green forest mask, though =P )
Dragons have lots of time - and if we amuse them, good =D

Yes they do deserve indeed, a lot of work and inspiration went into them. I also like that Mask of Cosmos. ;) It was really hard to make a choice in the poll.

Представила такую маску на морде своей кошки... стало смешно))) Она вредная, кусается, играется, бегает-летает повсюду... ей бы такая маска явно пошла))))
А вообще, очень классная работа! Стильная, симпатичная... в чем-то проявляется гордость и достоинство... не знаю как это правильно описать :)

Кошка в маске XD
Жалко, кошки не любят лишних предметов на голове - будут ходить, тереться головой обо всё подряд, пока не снимут =D
Интересное выражение у маски получилось, да =)

Ага))) Это веская вредность))) А моя дракон и так - когда игривая и пытается на все напасть, становится боком, хвост полукругом, с-под лоба смотрит и когти выставляет.... такая смешная)))) а если еще и начинает плямкать - вообще умора)))

Наша, когда игривая, забирается по стене под потолок... И воет там)))
А уж если что катающееся на полу лежит.... всё, тушите свет.
