My entry for :icondianae:'s contest "Gods, Goddesses and Mythology".

This one is a beaded peacock necklace.

According to the greek mythology, Argos was a giant with a hundred eyes. He was Hera's servant. Hera's defining task for Argos was to guard the white heifer Io, one of the many nymphs Zeus was coupling with, keeping her chained to the sacred olive tree at the Argive Heraion. To free Io, Zeus had Argus slain by Hermes.
In memory of Argos, Hera placed his hundred eyes on the tail of her sacred bird, the peacock.

This necklace was entirely made with seed beads (plus a few Swarovski beads).

Time spent : approx. 30 hours

Design by me.
Please let me know if one of your deviations was inspired by this pattern ;)

A Beloved Memory is by ~The-2nd-Trinity is a necklace that is as shiny as a true peacock and has an interesting background concept. Its unusual shape and colors make it very attractive, beautiful and intricate looking. ( Suggested by Dianae and Featured by Myana )

Wow, I love this. The colors are stunning! The shape is lovely, too. What would have been cool is if you could have actually incorporated a hundred eyes into it. You came close, though!

that is exquisite. It really is. I can't believe you did that all out of those tiny beads. I think I would just make a total mess of things. :p
Very beautiful!
