About this design:
This dragon has taken YEARS to complete the pattern for, and it is most dificult to do when working witht eh smaller beads and such.
I started this pattern when I was 18 (am now 29) it wasnt perfected till I was 26. And this whole dragon theme I have is thanks to the woman who has made the biggest impact in my life...my mom, aka Dragon Lady of Clover Park Tech. School. She wanted a dragon, and I mde her the funniest looking one I ever mde, from that, the idea grew and grew, until...TA DA!!!
I used for this one, Pony Beads and 20g wire. He is 18" aprox. nose to tail tip. His wing span is 17" - 18". He has a forked tongue and four feet he stands on perfectly.
I have made ones as small as 4" out of seed beads, and one that was 8" out of 4mm stone round beads.
I do offer to people with a passion for the Dragon, an oppertunity to learn to make these, but it is hard to do, and I cant put instructions on here because 99% is in my head and only comes out when I work on them.
There are other patterns for the back, instead of a diamond there is an upside down "v" or stripes.
I hope all the dragon lovers out there enjoy
