River Dragon-Current

About this design:

Current found a home on this piece of amazonite and she latched onto this peridot crystal and wouldn't let go. She liked the new jade and rainbow jasper so I accented them with some gold bead caps. What dragon doesn't like gold? A few peridot crystals and she was happy at 18" (she adds 2") there is a 2" extender. The earrings are 1". She is looking for a happy home with a dragon loving person. cookiesdragons@gmail.com


Amazonite focal bead with gold plated dragon glued on, New Jade, Rainbow Jasper, gold plated bead caps and chain and clasp, gold filled earwires, swarovski crystals.

    Cookie, I LOVE this set! CC is right, the contrast of colors really makes this pop. And, of course, I adore the dragon = did you add the crystal? It’s perfectly placed! And the earrings are great!

    This is such a nice combination. Love the touch of red with the amazonite. This piece has a definite oriental flair.
