Guardians of the pearls

I've called this, very grandly, the Guardians of the Pearls. My bead soup Partner Valerie sent me some beautiful chocolate coloured pearls as well as the long stick pearls near the neckline.  The really unusual circular glass link beads were also from her generous hoard!  I wanted to use several techniques here so the fron links are Byzantine chain mail in toning colours.

As those of you who know me are all too aware, I love doing very small detailed odds and ends;these dragons are made using size 11 Miyuki delicas. The design was drawn up for me, though I have made minor alterations, by Thread-a-bead.uk – thank you!
