Hi, I have shiny wings by Rrkra Hi, I have shiny wings by Rrkra
I'm back with more dragons :fuzzydemon:

...
This thing is what I've been doing for like a month. Most time-consuming dragon ever.
I wanted to make something with big wings for quite some time... And then I found this awesome bead colour called "Gold-Lustered Rust". It's brownish red with iridescent green shine. So unbelievably pretty when it catches light :love: I just had to make wings from it...

There are wires inside wings, tail and feather-thingys.
Pattern on the wings was 'make-it up-as-I-go' so it's not really symmetrical. Did my best to make them look alike though.
Feather-thingys were a random idea. I was reading about comet moths and decided to give something like that to the dragon.
Mouth was meant to be a cross between teeth and beak. It can open a bit. Eyes are big because he needs to see everything around while in flight.
Small legs - because it's not like he can run much with those wings anyway :lol:

=================================
Peyote, ndebele, brick stitch.


Size: ~45cm (~17.7 inch) long, ~35cm (13.8 inch) wingspan.

Materials: Braided fishing line (whole 135m spool), wire. Hematite-coloured beads for eyes (they are magnetic), swarovski crystals (opal, metallic blue).

TOHO rocailles:
Size 11: 49 (black), 49f (frosted black), 21 (silver-lined), 25 (silver-lined red), iridescent blue, white.
Size 15: 49 (black), 49f (frosted black), 21 (silver-lined).

TOHO Treasures: 330(Gold-Lustered Rust), 21 (Silver-Lined), 49 (black), 88 (Metallic Cosmos).

Also some black size 15 charlottes and black triangles.
Glass balls and some other randomly-found beads and things used as filling.
