This serious-looking silver dragon hangs from an entirely hand made chain of fiery red, yellow and gold beads, finished with a small facetted garnet near the clasp.
The dragon has been made using silver clay (Art Clay Silver, which when fired becomes solid fine silver, .999 quality), which has been tumble polished to a bright shine. His eye has been pierced out by hand. The beads on the chain are a selection of freshwater pearls, red jasper and glass, and each one has been linked by hand using sterling silver wire. The necklace measures 16.5 inches, and fastens with a sterling silver bolt ring clasp to a short length of silver extension chain, from which a wire-wrapped facetted garnet bead hangs.
