Beaded Frog (2) – 3D / Large Size

The hardest part on this one is the back legs, each is made of 3 parts and are a bit tricky to fit together. I decided to give that frog an open mouth that wasn’t on the pattern for a funnier touch.

Beaded Fish – Japanese / Small Size

Although the pattern’s got a 3D shape, I had to make this one flat. The 4mm copper wire I was using was too big for the 2nd layer. I couldn’t fit it 4 times in the same bead for the tail which is a shame. However it still does the trick as a flat sculpture, that’s why I kept it.

Beaded Seahorse (2) – 3D / Large Size

Large sculptures are gorgeous. They take a while to make but they’re actually not that difficult. So far, I’ve only found patterns for them in French books by Guillaume DuchĂȘne. I strongly recommend them, you’ll be amazed with what you can find in there.

This one is a bit unusual as it’s got a flat 3D look but that’s also what makes it so funky.

Beaded Delfin – 3D / Small Size

The body was built on nylon thread and every attached part on copper wire. It worked quite nicely.
