I learned to do free form peyote just in order to make this piece. It was one of the first peyote pieces I ever did. I was so naive at the time that I had no idea I was not supposed to mix my beads in a peyote piece! So .... the wings, which are supposed to lay flat, instead were all wavy, because my beads were not all exactly the same size/height.
After several, rather creative, comments about myself, I added some soft copper wire behind the wings and deliberately curved them. Then I mounted my new dragon against a piece of soft leather cut to make it resemble a full-size body piece.
I'm quite happy with how the piece looks.
