Praying Mantis Tutorial

By
Thought it would be easier to explain :XD:

I think I'll leave it like this.
So yeah. Angry shiny bugs. Praying mantis is one awesome insect.

The materials I used for the green/orange mantis: 0.1mm braided fishing line, wire (probably steel wire, tried copper but it was too weak), 4mm bicones, Toho seed beads - short bugle beads, size 8, 11 and 15.
But it can be done with just one size of beads, too.
