I didn't think I would be able to get this done by the deadline but I was snowed in today and couldn't get to work.  Soooo, I crocheted all day and just got it finished.  It can be worn as a necklace or double wrapped and worn as a bracelet. Hope you enjoy!

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

Thank you all so much.  Yes, it is crocheted.  I probably have about 20 hours or more into it, from start to finish.  I drew out the pattern which is supposed to look like waves going down the sides of the body.  All the beads are then strung onto the ball of thread in order according to the pattern.  Then you start crocheting from the tail and each bead is worked into each stitch and you finish at the head.  I'm glad you liked him.

Oh wow Smiley. I love the detail and colour on the snake! The technique looks really intricate, but the result is amazing. Great job!
