Jen's Dragon

I could have sworn I had a better picture of this, but I can't find it, so I guess I don't! This is the necklace I made for my friend Jen as part of a Pay it Forward crafting thing on Facebook. Jen loves dragons, and I thought this one that I got from Artbeads.com a while back was perfect for her, because it's highly detailed, unusual, and a nice size. Plus the round shape looks great with the nephrite jade coins! I also used hematite, and Czech glass in Montana blue with a jade green Picasso effect on the ends. I was finally able to give it to her on Sunday and she loves it. Yay!

If you would like a dragon necklace of your own, I do have some available at Handmade Jewelry by Erthe Fae Designs. Well actually, it looks like right now I only have one, In The Dragon's Nest. So I guess I know one thing I need to work on after gem show! I have a bad habit of hoarding all the dragon focals for myself instead of making them into jewelry for the shop! I need to either be less greedy, or buy more duplicates ;)


  1. what's not to love about dragons? the good is amazing, and the bad is, well, so wonderfully bad ;]

  2. If you really love dragons, you might want to read this. They don't have a hardcover, but I linked to it because I love that cover. They do have the paperback.

  3. Julie, dragons were always my favorite until I found out how rich faerie lore was. But I'm still a big fan of the dragons! I actually bought that pendant with the idea of keeping it for myself, but it was perfect for Jen!

    Marilee, I'll have to check that book out! I haven't read a good dragon book for a long time.
