Smaug box - Completed!

It is finally finished. It almost didn't get done as I broke multiple beads and needles just trying to get the lid done.

The large faceted bead on top is represents the Arkenston. The silver background represents mithril.

Here are all three dragon boxes. I hope to do more in the series, but I am going to go back to work on other works in progress.

Smaug progress report

Over a year ago I was rereading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien and was inspired to make a Smaug dragon box. By the fall I had finally decided on the colours I would use to represent Smaug and mithril,

I started the box. It got put aside to as I worked on other projects. I picked it back up to finish it so that I could enter it to be in the next TBS calendar.

I have finished the body of the box and only need to do the lid. I hope to have the lid finished by the weekend.
