January 2010 Beaded 3D Chicken Charm Project.

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beading tutorials and other project. This month's project is a beaded 3D Chicken, made with Japanese glass seed beads using right angle weave Beading technique.

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.

What you need:

1)   Glass seed beads, size 11/0 black, white, yellow and red color. 
2)   Beading string (0.25mm)

Always Remember to pull tight on EVERY STEP.
