Dragon wings.  For those people who asked how I did wings on my dragon brooches.
That's how.
Now I can just link you here =D

Materials, as usual: seed beads (Toho size 11 here, but any will do), thread and (optionally) wire.

I like that your "fingers" are two beads thick. I tend to make them only one bead thick, so I will have to try your pattern sometime.

The more patterns-the more choice-the better^^
This makes the finger a bit thicker than wing surface, so it stands out a bit more.

It looks nice. If I do use this pattern, I will be sure to post it here and give you credit.

tutorial is fabulous, thank you!!!! Just wondered, what gauge wire do you use? for inside, and also if you do the actual beading with wire? thank you!

Any gauge wire that will fit inside the 'tube'. The one I use is around 0.3-0.5 mm. 
The actual beading is done with thread (wire isn't flexible enough for that, at least for me).

thank you!! I very much want to try this- do you fit a bead inside if you are doing a head? or does it just hold its shape from the seed beads tension? You are very talented, and kind to share so much.

These are fairly small, so thread tension is enough for them to keep shape.
But if you use a bead, make sure its colour fits (especially with transparent beads).

Все гениальное просто)

А у больших по тому же принципу?

Давно пора было нарисовать, спрашивают часто. Крылья симпатичные получаются, авось кому поможет =)
А то меня в объяснениях вечно заносит не в ту степь - получаются шедевры мысли в стиле Сплетите пальцы (хвост, рога, усы) ндебеле (или кирпичиком, сеткой, мозаикой), заполните промежутки (мембрану, плавники, перья) одиночной мозаикой (или двойной, или тройной, или сеткой, кирпичиком, ндебеле). Или не плетите. Может, нет у него крыл. Тогда из этой детальки могут выйти неплохие уши! :XD:

У больших сначала было так rrkra.deviantart.com/art/Bead-… а теперь вообще перья. Общая мысль похожа, да.

I'm not sure if I understand what is going on here but I appreciate the tutorial and like seeing (or at least trying to understand) how you do it all.

It does require a little bit of beading experience =D
But glad you enjoyed it anyway))
