Dragon's Treasure


About this design:

These are the same 3 Green Girl pieces that Laud used in her necklace. I had them sitting on a plate with these stones and crystals until I figured out a design. The pearls were the last addition and sealed the deal.

Components:

Green Girl pewter charms and connector-2 from LB, Dragon's Blood Jasper, my stash, Red Tiger Eye, LB, Swarovski crystals, my stash, Luscious GREEN freshwater pearl, LB,(sorry, I bought the last of them), Irish waxed linen, LB, leather cord, LB, pewter colored copper wire, LB

    FAB-u-lishous-ness!!! Of course I was drawn to the dragon’s blood stones but the next elements I saw were the GreenGirl beads. :) SO clever! I would not have thought of the pearls but they are perfect with the stones and the leather.
    One of your BEST!!!

    Becky..this is lovely and so earthy. I really admire your skill in wrapping your loops onto the loop above it. That takes a lot of patience and skill. I need to challence myself to do that,and stop cheating with junp rings. I think it has a nicer flow.

    Awesome–but slightly different dragons from mine. I used a dragon-in-the-round instead of the dragon pendant piece. Really pretty design and color choices.

    Oops, Laud, guess I didn’t look as closely as I should have. :)

    Fanrastic Becky. Gorgeous color combination. I see iridescent dragon scales and dragon’s blood.

    There are so many interesting elements to look at, but it is unified! The leather segments are wonderful, and you chose some beautiful stones throughout. Beautiful piece.
