Tetse

Tetse

No one ever accused him of settling for a little flair. Nope, not an ounce of desire to remain hidden away. There is nothing but bright, vibrant flash and a sweet tooth that could not be described in human tongue. Though he is kind enough to ask if he might have some, first. And if you seem reluctant, only then will he mesmerize with that tail of his.

I definitely wanted something a bit different and dramatic. And I also wanted a tail that didn't look so organized and was more "free form" and "open". Well... I succeeded enough to be happy with him.

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.

Sien and Selia

Sien and Selia

I had not meant to make a pair of dragons. They insisted. This is the result of my wandering into a local bead store. I think I will be going back soon.

As for the critters themselves, they really can't be separated. Selia and Sien are quite very much in love and not in the least bit willing to do something silly like stay away from one another. While they'd normally be living in the forest and flashing those bright tails at unknowing passers-by to trick them into abandoning their food (they'd learned to work with tourists, you see), I'm sure they'd like to travel and see other places. Just... watch your food. Sandwiches, most of all.

Sanguine

Sanguine

She is mine. I found these drop-dead gorgeous blood- cranberry- pomegranate-red beads... it just had to happen. Of course, because I created Sanguine for the express purpose of being my dragon bracelet, she gave me more trouble than any of the others. So much more. I cannot even describe, nor do I want to think about it... but it goes to show how worthwhile this project was. And boy did I learn new techniques quickly.

She is a bit... different than the others in several ways. I am not in the least bit complaining, mind you... it's just a reminder that my intent only means so much. Heh.

Ralph

Ralph

Ralph is an exceptionally easy-going dragon, very supportive of all endeavors, mostly of the artistic variety. He likes pretzels but not so much long walks on the beach, as he gets sand between his scales and that makes him a little less easy-going. He does tend to charm dessert out of people, though, so watch out. Or, if you want to be very good to him, don't.

These beads. Are wow. At first glance they are an insanely vibrant sapphire blue, but they're lined with emerald green (which barely comes through in the pictures; if you look hard enough, you can catch it between beads) that just sparkles in certain light. He's really quite lovely all-around.

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.

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.

Levi

Levi

It's a first attempt at a lot of things... but I think he's kind of a giant leap. I like him. A lot. A damn lot. It's obviously taking quite a bit of what I've learned up to this point and mixing it together to create happy shiny Levi. He is, in fact, a bracelet with the catch hidden a little bit better into the design. The hook isn't so much, but being beneath his jaw, I just plain didn't mind that part.

And for the name... Levi. Three different shades of blue, Levi... Levis... oh nevermind.
