The Dragon's Garden Bracelet



 Welcome to the Dragon's Garden.  SSSSShhh!!! It's sleeping, yet somehow it is still watching you watching her....
 Steven Weiss of Bead Smith contacted me to see if I was interested in trying out his company's newest, coolest offering,  Metal Elements metal seed beads.
Of course I was.
I am the dragon that hoards Shinies...
The matte zinc size 11s and 15s were fun to use, the color is definitely more true on these metal beads then on glass beads, when it comes to this soft  metallic gunmetal.
I also got some size 15  24 carat gold plated metal seed beads from Steven  too, can't wait to think of something to use those for...
 The center cabochon is the work of Nixcreations on Etsy. He makes some really intense fantasy inspired eye cabochons. The one I used here is a human eye I think, but in purple.Anyhow, it reminded me of dragons...
 I am the lucky owner of other crazy fun eyes from this seller too, so there will be more beady eyes starring at you soon.
There are also some taxidermy eyes, heliotrope rivolis and mini dichroic cabs, mostly covered by the metal seed beads, so they look like squinty little eyes peeping out from their reptilian folds.

  4. Hello dear Kinga,
    Your new band has something mystical, magical in itself. The name fits perfectly.
    I hope the New Year is as good as your jewelry is beautiful.
