About this design:

This piece is one of my new projects, I'm on a "glue" kick. The dragon is glued to the blue "jade" stone, which is glued to the brass filigree. I've been making focals by layering/glueing and this one was easy, almost went together on it's own. The chain is vintage brass with czech crystals for a little color. The necklace measure 20" and has a 3' extender chain. The earrings are 1" long.


Brass chain, filigree, findings, gold plated ear wires, czech crystals 6mm, "jade" stone finding, glue.

    Wow this is amazing, absolutely gorgeous! I really love the way you layered the pieces and the dragon displaying it is so cute!
    What type of glue did you use and dose it hold on the long run because of the weight of the stone?

    Thank you very much ladies! I used Dazzle Tac which is a jewelry glue. I’ve used it before to repair china/pottery and small pieces of jewelry with excellent results so I’m hoping this will hold up well also. It sure feels solid!! :)
