Dias

Dias

So this would be a prototype attempt at a dragon bracelet (and a legless version, at that). I just wanted to test something. And I rather liked the idea of the hooking mechanism being both visible, and also part of the critter. He works quite well, actually, and I'm testing out exactly how he works before I try again. I do think the next one with have a wire tail (for neatness alone, really) and I'll be experimenting with wire legs and feet... well, we'll see.

Also. For the most part, Dias is copper--but there are subtle gold diamonds spiraling around him. The gold explodes in the tail so it's a bit more noticeable, but it's really hard to photograph.

dragon-maleficent

dragon-maleficent

She was intended for a contest, but details of that got foiled in various ways, various times and... well, she's been sitting, waiting for her chance. The other day I walked in the room and noticed her and thought, "No. She needs the world to see her now. And maybe someone will really want to cherish her in the way she deserves."

I'm proud of her, besides. I always did love Maleficent, and despite how I have completely taken it upon myself to forget what a horrible experience her boss fight in Kingdom Hearts was, it was also one of those fun "two worlds meeting" things. Hence, awesome shininess!

Teine

Teine

Blue is excellent, of course. But a nice fiery red with orange, yellow and gold was quite needed. I tried a few slightly different techniques on Teine, and she turned out surprisingly well (just don't tell her I said that). Granted I'm not sure if I will re-use some of the techniques, but she's just as lovely, stable and flexible as the others. And so very, very bright.

I sort of accidentally made the catch look a little old and rusted, too. I was going to correct this... then I decided that I kinda liked it. Sorry guys, guess you're stuck with it.

Trema

Trema

Not exactly one to pull back and hide in a crowd, Trema's intentions are generally centered around having fun. Life is but a dream, experience the joy, don't let the bastards grind you down, a little bit of color and shiny is all you need. And the occasional sweet treat.

Another something a little bit different. I guess you could call it "freestyle" but then I don't know what I don't do that couldn't be considered "freestyle", so anyway. ...His tail reminds me of the Hylian Shield.

Querida

Querida

What can I say; apparently I was a little bit inspired by the colors on literally almost everything on the tourist-rich southwest. Heh. I'm quite pleased with how she came out, though.

Querida's certainly a playful spirit. She prefers to hide and people-watch, occasionally moving things when no one's looking. It's the little things.

Kerian

Kerian

He's the result of a trip to the bead store and an "Oooh" being proclaimed about those sapphire-colored drops. Oh, and the extremely intensely shiny beads, which pictures will never do justice. He is blindingly bright in a myriad of sparkly colors, most of which stick to the blue-ish part of the spectrum (but reds and golds are still found). So he is shiny.

As for Kerian himself... well, he's a little... insane. Not in a bad way, really... but maybe not in the "Oh, he would make a great babysitter for little Timmy" way. Not that you'll have anything to worry about... so long as you keep him well fed.

Nikida

Nikida

Nikida is a protector. He would defend what he loves with his life--but despite his strength is a will not to harm. He much prefers to guide and watch over, to take in the sights and entertainments... and yes, occasionally, maybe some sweet things as well.

Elia

Elia

She's very young and rather small even for her age, but don't take her for granted. She has perfected the "head tilt and pleading eyes", by which she acquires all of the tasty treats she desires. Don't worry, though. She's very kind-hearted and will certainly share.

Poor girl waited an awfully long time to be done. I was focused on convention stuff and "another insane bead project" that will appear in public... whenever it's done. Anyway. She's actually a magnificently VIBRANT red-orange and shimmery gold with red Swarovski crystals, but... that doesn't always seem to be clear in the pictures.
