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.

Yep, although the pin part is weaker than I'd like.

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. >_<

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

Thanks, everything tends to gain a life of its own if I'm doing things right, so having them be unique isn't too hard. ;)

All of my stuff is up for sale (unless I've already sold it that is). I haven't sold any of my metalworkings, I haven't really tried to sell 'em though. They'd definitely be higher priced than my other stuff, the penannular brooches would anyways.
