R2D2?

I just finished this beaded fob. It’s supposed to be a blossom, but frankly in this photo,  I think it resembles  a creature from Star Wars or some other science fiction movie.  Perhaps I should title it “Take Me To Your Leader”, a phrase seemingly uttered in one or more movies of that genre.  I started by stitching a four sided pod in right angle weave and then Ndebele stitched  four appendages at the base and eight at the top.  The beaded sheath at the base was added separately and houses the heavy gauge sterling headpin that runs through the bead. Japanese seed beads in three sizes and 3mm bicone crystals were used in this piece. A  large opal AB tear drop crystal sits at its base.
