Picture by grizel, thats why it sucks. They said no flash or tripod.
I've tried to kill as much dark and blurriness as I could in photoshop. Still sucky.

 

 

Pearl beads in a stylixed rain cloud pattern with words.... in different size pearls,
it's sorund the upper calf, under the knee, like a embroidered garter.


The eagels on this man's over tunic is all in pearls, three and four sizes of them, blending, using the beads to form out the design even moreso with thier texture. The pictures just suck.
