Here’s the newest listing on BellBooknDragon. She’s one of my hanging dragons, if you buy her you have the option of putting her on a chain, or just purchasing the dragon.
About the same time I listed her I got an e-mail from Facet – the new site for Bead & Button Magazine. In the e-mail was a monthly contest, no cash prize, but due recognition if your item is chosen and they are picking three. The theme is Ascend – of course, I had to enter a dragon. So look for my listing, Soar on Dragon Wings…..
Here is the link to the page:
There are some very lovely and interesting submissions, many different techniques, all are lovely. However, each of them looks lonely somehow…..
As of today, there are only 21 submissions, and not one of the items has a comment made. So if you are of a mind to…visit and comment on a couple of the submissions. It won’t take long to browse through the submissions. I’m heading there as soon as I post this to comment on a couple. I know it’s been crazy this fall with the insane politics and Christmas coming – but really….
If you have any thing you would like to submit they are taking submissions through November 30th.
She says, it looks like the dragon on the cover of her new book – Paper & Fire. Which I went out and purchased as soon as she left the table at Bubonicon. I’m still reading it, but I’m enjoying every chapter. I read a while, bead awhile, and read another chapter when inspiration wanes. I’ll have to get the first Book in the Series, but I’m hooked on this one… I usually do my series in order, but occasionally, I start somewhere else! This one is an easy read even though I’ve started in the middle.
I’m going to have to check out her Morganville Vampire Series as well and it looks like I’ll be reading a lot from this lovely lady! She writes in my favorite genre. Check out her website here: http://www.rachelcaine.com
I’m hoping the dragon will take time to whisper in her ear about a new book idea….on Dragons! And that the dragon’s eye she took home will glare at her until it happens!
Rachel, thanks for adopting/buying the dragon and the dragon eye. I know they got a good home!
I’ve been working on more dragon designs and maybe it’s the cover of this book, but I really strayed from my usual dragon colors.
The tail is a bit large, but I’m working a shaggy fringe for the back ridge. Yes, there are beads strung on the fireline and there is a needle on it to keep the beads from falling off. I took this straight from the beading table and it will go right back. I really like the red in this and wonder how it would look fading to purple.
The wing that is finished is the second version. I beaded the tail while watching TV and I usually come up with a random pattern. Imagine my surprise, when I got most of the wing done and it was done in yellow & red diamonds. Might have kept it on a larger dragon, but not on one this size! This is what happens when you let the dragon have it’s way!
I’ll get back to finishing this Dragon after Pagan Pride Day September 25. Speaking of…..I need to get back to tagging the items not already tagged….it’s always something.
