Jewlery: Dragon Brooch by Ranasp Jewlery: Dragon Brooch by Ranasp
Did I mention that I love dragons? How could I even try to keep them out of jewlery? :)

Made out of a bottom layer of brass with copper soldered onto it, the copper has a patina to make it look redder than usual. The stone is turquoise, as well as the beads that I used for eyes. (the pupils are the holes of the beads) The scales were stamped on with a metal working tool.

I wanted the dragons to be celtic, yet easy to tell apart from lizards, so I westernized it a bit.

Thanks! Always nice to meet a dragon fan. Er, a GOOD dragon fan. I just recently framed three pictures of horrible fat little cutesy dragons that were wretch-worthy, and apparently the woman has TONS of them. >_<

Thanks, I was going nuts trying to figure out what stones I should use, when I just upended my pile of 'em and those called out to be used. :)

That's pretty amazing stuff - to be able to mold a piece of jewelry that is truly unique. Very cool. :nod:
