Newest bead creation.
This seriously looks a hundred times better in rl, but I took a ton of pics of it and they all look like crap. Much more photographic in rl. Anyhoo, I'm really happy with it. My brain is still churning around the thought of making something WAY bigger ....

Cut for those on dial up )

Thanks for lookin'!

Here's Snape, still on the loom.

God! Beads are so friggin' hard to photograph! I tried to take a good one of the Snarry now that it's off the loom, and it's like the camera can't deal with the details and makes it all ... liney.

Anyhoo, here they are.

Both are work safe )

These are both for sale, btw. (funding a trip at the end of Nov.)
I'll send them glued and each string knotted mutltiple times to facillitate non slippage. They're pretty tough this way, but are still able to be sewn to any surface. (you can seen the knots in the Snarry one. They can also be cut a lot shorter, but I'll leave that to the buyer.)

I will also consider a bead comission. :D

Whooooooooo! Well, THAT was fun. ;)
Each row is 90 beads long and the whole thing is 62 rows down. About 12 hours of just beading. (Meaning, not including sorting the beads by colour and tweaking the reference. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, and certainly learned a lot. The next one will be better. (I hope.)


The pics are of it still on the loom, because I put a bead of glue on each string before I take it off, to stop and string slippage. It should photograph better once I remove it. In total it's just a hair under 6x6 inches, and over 5500 beads!
Pics or it didn't happen. )

Sorry for the giant pics! My compter (or lj) wouldn't let me upload images, so I had to do it via tinypic.

But for now, here's this:
Beady goodness beneath cut )

My loom now only has room for around 23 beads per row. (hence this being split into two pieces.) The new one will be able to have 97!!

*iz excite*

I'm thinking of making some Snape/Snarry ones. Anyone interested in comissioning me?

I said I'd draw Snarry, AND I DID! Except that it's part of the upcoming Snarry a Thon-fest-thing. It starts posting tomorrow, so stay tuned!!

I went out the other day and bought some Perler beads. (yanno, the type you iron to melt them together?) They were not as ... forgiving as I'd hoped.

Most stuff under the cut is work safe, but some is DECIDEDLY NOT. So beware! )
