no?  well, let me show you then...



a lot of screaming and yelling went into the making of this piece.  it was my very first attempt at creating something like this.  I'm pretty happy with how she turned out.  Smiley

thank you!   Smiley

I'm thinking of attempting this again with another character now that I know what I'm doing a little better than I did before.   Tongue

and it took many hours.  I lost count after the first 2.   Shocked

Wow. I can understand the yelling and screaming part. lol.

Did you work from a pattern?? How on earth did you manage this?!

Excellent, I'd be very proud to have created something of that detail.

Amazing work! You must have been deeply inspired to have created such a magnificent piece.

The shrink in me cannot help but wonder what draws you so magnetically to the character of Ariel...

a pattern that I made.  using a game sprite I found online, I managed to create a pattern.  the whole "bust" was done in 11/0 Delica beads, so managing this was a bit of a challenge.  it's a pretty good size too.  it's hanging on the wall from a push pin, to give you an idea of its size.

thank you!

and to help you analyze, am an Aries with Pisces tendencies, but I am SO more like my Piscean side, who's element is water.  so I loved to swim when I was a kid and I still do love the water.  plus, I think I'll always believe in mermaids.  Smiley

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Ariel is my favorite too!

wow!  this is amazing.  I tried my hand at beading like this, only not nearly as complex. I think i ended up scrapping the project 10 beads into it.  It really looks like a labor of love. 

ps my daughter is flipping out over it too.  not, flipping, but running around the room screaming "Ariel!  it's Ariel on your computer!  Let's look at that picture! Click on it!!!!!"  She is a huge ariel fan, if you couldn't tell.   Wink

I do plan on starting another.  but it seems I can't yet due to the fact that I don't have all of the colors I need, so I have to order them.  but stay tuned for more!

really?  she likes Ariel?  I couldn't tell.   Wink

I'd been wanting to get into more complex beading, but I kept giving up too until I found this awesome book.  it's called "The Encyclopedia of Beading Techniques".  they make everything very easy to understand.  so check it out if you are interested in beading.  it's very helpful.  even more so than the Dummies and Idiots books that I bought.
