This was not a very serious mouse: it was originally strung on tigertail, with a tiny body, and if I ever photographed it, I failed to tag the image. So I'm not certain how long ago I originally strung it though it's likely the bullseye focal was made between 2005 and 2008—really, I should either use that stuff up, or get rid of it...F2tE liked the colour scheme of this little mouse, preferring to have it back after it broke to some newer designs, so I restrung it.
Dead mouse. Note: clicking on the image will give you a nice sharp, full-size version. Restrung July 2018, on beadalon, with a 6mm rose quartz bead fit into the little beadholder/bail on one of the tails. Bullseye and effetre lampwork, seed beads, base metal, beadalon, 22ga 308 steel wire, rose quartz. Approximately 9" long, with a focal bead of about 12mm. Minor editing/changes of original design.
Aside from putting the body of the mouse (the purple spotted pink BE bead and the half round white metal bead) on a gallery wrapped 22ga steel wire, adding a bead for the bail/bead cap for support (as it was getting sadly crushed), and some minor rearrangement of the seed bead strands, it looks very much as it did originally.
Though I have a vague memory of making it during one of our JDftY's stays, which means it's at least 4 years old...sounds about right.
And perfectly content to deal with its kinky, awkward looking tails in the meantime, as 7strand tigertail kinks more readily than beadalon.
Mebbe I should go back to manually resizing these images...
