July page finished - Here be a Dragon



I fnished my page just now. I have a feeling the pictures did not come out that well, so I may try again. At any rate, I am happy with the finished product and hope I don't go back at a later date and add more beads. I will need to put a back on it at some point. I really enjoyed doing the peyote piece separately and making the dragon and will probably do that again, with a wolf next time. Or a pattern I have that is the back of another amulet bag, it is a Native American pattern. It is really cool. Anyway, speaking of patterns, the pattern I used for the dragon came from Beaded Obsessions and was designed by Bobbi Assemi. It is only the second time I used a pattern to bead in peyote.

The beads spoke to me again too. The material I used was an inspiration to me this time around.

I am happy to have finished early as I will have time to work on other bead projects from Beads on the Vine and a new knitting project I want to start. Then my August page, which is planned out too.

Happy beading everyone.

The picture within a picture is a great way of doing things. I love this piece. Dragons are a fave of mine and the fabric is beautiful.

I do the Renaissance Festival here in Minnesota, so the more dragons the better I feel. The page is fabulous, that fabric is to die for.

What a clever use of beading techniques -- all in all, a lovely presentation!

Dragons are wonderful. I like the peyote piece on the fabric and the embellishment.I can't wait to see what you are going to do for August.

You did a great job on the dragon. My daughter was in a play called "Here There Be Dragons", so that image spoke to me. I like how you made that part of a larger piece.
Very nice.

Hi Nancy,

I agree with Vivage about "the picture within a picture". Your piece reminds me of something from "King Arthur's" time-wonderful! :o) Lillian

I love your combination of materials and techniques! The dragon is great and your fabric is wonderful! I'm also beading a separate piece and stitching it onto a backing piece for my July piece :)
