The distant past, the year 2000… picture little 11 year old me painstakingly selecting pony bead colors and cranking out dozens of bead lizards with which to shower my friends and family. It was one of my favorite crafts at school activity time. So prolific was my lizarding that when I asked my mom if she still had one, she found it the next day!
So here is my 20 year old pony bead lizard next to a newborn seed bead friend.
For these miniature versions, I used fine beading wire to make them poseable.
Since I had a pair, I decided to make them earrings!
Turns out I enjoy making them just as much as I did as a kid. I want to make a dozen more.
