14cm from top to toe
This is one of my favourite pieces. But it's also the one that took me by far the longest time to get the right materials. It was so hard to get the colours I imagined. Believe me or not, I have searched three years to get those great beads: high-quality japanese delica beads. I have not worked with them before, but they instantly convinced me. The quality of these beads is simply outstanding. So, to all the beaders out there: Try them out, they are worth their money!
The colour concept of the bird is fully done by me, I only used some guidelines for the body itself. I tried to make it look like a flame, as a phoenix always goes up in flames before it is reborn from the ashes. The branch it is sitting on is also done by me without guidlines.
