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.


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.

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