I began making these silly creatures over 30 years ago. Each lizard is wrapped tightly with colorful ribbon, and the beads are sewn onto the ribbon. Pins, odd earrings, charms etc. are sewn on for embellishment. The larger lizards have a wire on their tail, under the ribbon, to keep it's curled shape.
Every lizard is one of a kind, and comes with its' nametag in a custom jewelry box. My lizards have been selling in the gift shop at the Virginia Museum of Art in Richmond since 2016.
