This piece spoke to me especially because I grew up making beaded animals as I kid, mostly cheap keychains for my backpack. I then grew older thinking beaded animals was kid stuff, not mature crafts, not like fancy beaded jewelry. This piece blows that mindset away. These beads have been so beautifully arranged to create this amazing dragon. From personal experience, it is hard to make an animal out of beads, especially one that is so clearly detailed. True skill was used to make this creation.
