    Julia, you are certainly on a roll with your latest postings — your talent is amazing! :D This set is so beautiful — the color, design, and that fabulous pendant! So glad you decided to “recycle” him — or her! ;) :D

    I sure wish I could travel with you to the countries where you find such beautiful gems and pendants! 8)

    Thank You, ladies :)
    Lynn, the dragon actually I found in US, on the flea market: it was black and you can barely see that it was dragon and… I bought it for $3 ! Then I came home and cleaned it. It became a shiny Sterling Silver Dragon… Then a couple of antique shop owners wanted to buy it from me for a nice sum… I said ‘no’, of cause, ha-ha. It was quite a few years back though…
