To make a beaded peacock we need:
- size 10 seed beads of nine colors: brown and dark-green for body, orange for claws and beak, black and beige for eyes, light-green, yellow, blue and purple for tail;
- size 3 grey bugle beads (instead of bugle beads you can take seed beads of grey or white color);
- 6 mm white round beads;
- wire 0.2 mm thick. Choosing a wire, check out that it could pass through the dark-green beads 6 times, otherwise take a thiner wire or beads with bigger hole;
- thin fishing line and a needle for cross-linking of finished object.
