Ray, the manta ray

I have listed many sea creatures on my to-do list of brick stitch creations in Miyuki beads, including a manta ray. Since I have been scuba diving, the manta ray is one of the most impressive sea creatures I have ever seen. French beaders Coeur Citron and Lili Azalée are organising a contest in partnership with Perlesandco, the theme is the “ocean”, so here is my entry.


Here is the pattern for personal use only. Feel free to show me yours on Instagram with the hashtag #motifelisapearls
