                        Loli Garcia Tirado-Spain
I discovered Japanese seed beads about 7years ago, and since then I can not stop sewing with them. I love the possibilities and the different sewing techniques that they have. I feel very creative with them. 
I hope you like my "Andromeda". Loli García (AnKara).

1) "Andrómeda" 
In Greek mythology, Andromeda is the daughter of the Aethiopian king Cepheus and his wife Cassiopeia. When Cassiopeia's hubris leads her to boast that Andromeda is more beautiful than the Nereids, Poseidon, influenced by Hades, sends a sea monster, Cetus, to ravage Aethiopia as divine punishment. Andromeda is stripped and chained naked to a rock as a sacrifice to sate the monster, but is saved from death by Perseus.
Perseus beheaded the Gorgon Medusa and saved Andromeda from the sea monster Cetus.
