More Wings! And Horns!
I’m not sure what the title of this Sea Dragon (my third) will be. When finished, it will sport eleven wings and seventy (yes, 70!) petite horns jutting from its glossy diamond patterned skin! The Ocean palette shades of matte and metallic blues and greens are juxtaposed against lustrous dark beads that are almost black. Inspired by the Sea Serpent in Contemporary Geometric Beadwork (by the way – CGB Volume II is in the works and can be pre-ordered from Kate McKinnon), I just can’t seem to get enough of winding lengths of wondrous beads around my wrist or wearing them around my neck as a collar! Just when I think I’m ready to move on to another form of geometric beading (I have had a design floating in my head for a wildly bodacious Rick-Rack cuff for some time!), I get fired up with ideas for designs that incorporates more lengths of Wings and Horns – in this case a multitude of mini-horns! A pattern for this design is already in progress – I’m taking photos and writing the step by step tutorial as I work each row. Stay tuned for the finished product!
