Hi, I have fluffy wings

I think my dragons keep getting bigger :XD:
(Better photos - maybe some day.)

So yeah. When I started making her, I decided to make a tutorial/walkthrough too:
Now you can try to make your own =D

Wings, tail - have wire inside, so they are posable. Mouth can open a bit and even hold small light items.
Bugle beads on the fringe give a fluffy-fur-feather look. 

Time - around a month.

Size - about 35cm (13.8 inches) long, wingspan about 45 cm (17.7 inches).

Black faceted agate beads, hematite-coloured glass 'dagger' beads, swarovski crystals, a round piece of paua shell.

Bugle beads:
3mm: 49 (Black), 29b (Silver-Lined Gray).
9mm: 49 (Black), 21 (Silver-Lined Crystal), rainbow-lustered pink from a mix.

Toho beads:
Size 15: 39b (Silver-Lined Tanzanite), 81 (Metallic Hematite).
Size 11: 49 (Black), 49f (Frosted Black), 29b (Silver-Lined Gray), 29bf (Frosted Silver-Lined Gray), 26c (Silver-Lined Amethyst), 406 (Opaque-Rainbow Oxblood).
Treasures: 21(Silver-Lined Crystal), 245 (Jet Lined Inside-Color Rainbow Jonquil), 49 (Black), 330 (Gold-Lustered Rust), 82 (Metallic Nebula), 90 (Metallic/Amethyst Gun Metal).

This... is SO cool!

A part of me is kind of thinking about using this tutorial and making these as party favors for my bridal party... (I'm having a Gothic Victorian/Medieval themed wedding, and my Bridal Party is at a Ren Faire...)

... Thanks so much for sharing! If I go through with it, I'll let you know how it goes. In all honesty, I'll probably fail pretty hard, haha.

Sounds fun =) Making several for party favours can take a while (that's the problem with all beadwork :XD: ).

Good luck ^^
