Dragon Necklace, Sterling Silver Fantasy Jewelry, Dimensional Dragon Hatchling P
This little dragon will be large and fierce one day, but right now he's just hatched and not even all the way out of his shell, making it a truly unique dragon necklace.
This sterling silver fantasy jewelry was created using the lost-wax casting method. After various designs and sketches were completed the dragon was sculpted out of wax. This process takes many enjoyable hours to create a strong overall design, along with precise detail -- note the individual scales on the dragon. When sculpting is complete the wax is invested in plaster and put in a kiln for a burnout cycle, the wax melts and molten silver is poured into the void where the wax used to be. It is cooled for a few minutes, then quenched in water, the plaster breaks away leaving the cast metal. Then excess metal is removed and the piece is given a rough polish. The silver is then oxidized (antiqued) to highlight the detail of the work before it receives a final buff.
This magical pendant is 7/8" tall x 3/4" wide, see the size in relationship to the penny, making it small enough for child's jewelry or for someone that prefers wearing smaller fantasy pendants. A 16 inch cord is included with this dimensional dragon hatchling pendant.

First things first: The design of this pendant is adorable. This little one makes me want to give it a chin rub :) and I am sure it will be worn often (already is :) & I like the cord, too). I would like to note just one thing: My baby dragon's foreleg is much smoother than shown in pictures 1 to 3 (where leg and neck are different but not as much) which makes it visually somewhat less coherent (making the leg look a little bit like a human forearm). I hope this is not too picky a remark (I am just hoping to give feedback on a detail). Thank you for this cute, cute baby dragon! It is loved already.

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I LOVE my little dragon. Such incredible work. The detail is amazing. Skillfully constructed and packaged thoroughly. It's gotta be one of the coolest things to ever appear on this site. I also appreciated the note and crystal ;) I highly recommend this shop. Sharon is a seriously great artist. Whimsical ~
