PDF Pattern, 12 Page, Full Color, Articulated Seed Bead Dragon
Pan Long is a fully articulated Chinese dragon constructed entirely from seed beads and Swarovski crystals. He is so flexible you can even tie him in a knot if you want. He can be worn as a necklace, a brooch, a bracelet or simply carried about as the ultimate in elegant worry beads. Pan Long, coiling dragon in Chinese, measures 8.5", when complete. His head is made using tubular and flat, even as well as odd count peyote. His scales are herringbone cones and his tail is a collection of seed bead and crystal streamers in a riot of colors. He has no wires of any kind inside his body, just seed beads. How this is achieved, you will have to buy the pattern to discover.
The design and pattern for this undulating wonder is my original work as are the instructional text, diagrams and photographs. The pattern is twelve pages of detailed instruction and full color photographs and diagrams of every step of the instructional process. Supplies needed for this project are pictured above. This pattern is not for the faint hearted. It requires advanced skills in both peyote and herringbone stitches. Pan Long himself, the pattern, text and graphics are all copyrighted material and may not be duplicated all or in part without written permission from me.
This listing is for the pattern to make Pan Long only, not for the dragon himself. A full color hard copy is available for purchase at a cost of US $40.00 plus shipping. If you are in love with Pan Long himself, he too is for sale at a cost of US $150.00 plus shipping. If you love Pan Long but wish he was in different colors, a special order version of him can be made for you for the pre-paid price of US $150.00 plus shipping. If you are not a beader; will never make a Pan Long of your own; cannot afford or do not wish to buy a completed Pan Long from me but still think he is worth your time, please, feel free to Stumble, Pin, Like or otherwise make note of him in social media or private messages to your friends and/or family.
Thank you for reading my proud ramblings,

P.S. A word of caution about the use of this pattern. You have my permission to make all the dragons you wish from this pattern for yourself or to give away. You do not, however, have permission to make commercial use of it. Specifically, that means you may not make and sell dragons made from this pattern, sell the pattern, copy, reproduce or use any part of it to make money or to share with others to save the cost of purchasing their own. I reserve that right solely for myself.
You do have my permission to let this pattern be a means for finding your own artistic voice. Vary the design of the dragon so that they are no longer recognizable as my work and I wish you G-d's speed. Change a stitch here and there for the sake of calling it your own and, as I learned to say in Turkey, may the fleas of a thousand camels infest your nether regions! . . .And. . .keep a watchful eye over your shoulder for my lawyer. As they say in department store dressing rooms, violators will be prosecuted.
