Baby dragon on a leather bracelet

Post by strike on Tue Jul 30, 2013 10:26 pm

I bought the baby dragon specifically to wear on my leather bracelet and then couldn't get him on it when he arrived Crying or Very sad Mad  I've worn him on a necklace, but always harboured the hope of getting him on the leather. And I finally have! cheers 

First I threaded one end through the back.





It worked, but he tilted forward a bit. Then I tried threading it through the bottom and although he tilted to the side, I was much more pleased with how flat he sat on my wrist.







I tried threading it in a similar way, but ending out the bottom, but I'm not as fond of that.



Next to figure out what other beads to put on with him. Laughing

It looks great on its own. I wouldn't add anything. But if you really want to add, may be a small berry or two?

Yes, something with a texture like that that doesn't compete with him is what he needs, I think. I might try Jugend too since it has a nice texture, but might compete. Or perhaps a Faerybead Very Happy 

I wanted to use my neither fish nor bird and the small faces, but neither fits over the ends of my leather bracelet.

Oh Sad  - I sold my Baby D because I didn't find him very useful.  
Thanks for showing me what I am missing.  Laughing
Those leathers look great.

I'm glad I was able to inspire a bit Smile I knew I wasn't the only one who struggled getting the baby dragon on the leather, so I figured I would share my experiments!

I'm glad my baby dragon has so many companions now! bounce 

Trollperle, yours looks really stunning on the two-tone bracelet. Great beads with it as well. Smile Is that an amber right below the dragon?

And I like the "flaming" beads that you've paired with yours, ceruleanbluebird!

I looked at mine again yesterday while doing "bead play" with my daughter, but of the beads I have, mine still looks best all by himself I think. Although I have been scoping out coloured leathers for him Embarassed
