I have plans for this guy. When I first saw the brown iris beads in the store, I remarked on how ugly they were and who would buy them. Then I got this idea and I needed an octopus of exactly that color. *thunks head* So here he is and he took forever to make. My brain is still swimming from trying to bead the arms correctly during the worst allergy season ever. I don't have a brain right now, folks. I have jello. [side view] Approximately 5 cm around and 2 cm high.
Materials: 32 gauge wire, 11/0 beads in brown iris, tortoise, and metallic gold, 12/0 beads in hematite.
