Earth Sky Dragon

About this design:

The blues and browns on the glazed dragon pendant make me think of a dragon of both earth and sky. This is an eclectic mix I put together today.

Components:

Glazed ceramic dragon pendant, green garnet wheels, etched Tibetan style agate rounds, glazed tile beads, glazed melon beads, wooden rounds, aged Czech seed beads, Toho seed beads, softflex medium wire, heavy sterling silver crimp beads, lobster clasp.

    I agree with everyone. Beautiful focal brought all together with such interesting beads – from wood to porcelain. And the earrings are perfect. Love the set.

    I am blushing. . . .the tiles were a thing at Michael’s a few years ago. They get some ceramic beads in occassionally, though I haven’t seen them recently.

    The first thing that caught my eye was the colors in the necklace and how gorgeous they were displayed against your back ground. Pure color harmony!

    Awesome use of beads & textures in this design! First, I must say, I am always impressed with your use of ceramics. I love ceramic beads & their meld of colors, and I like how you played off that with the wood beads & Garnets in this design. The etched beads in front with the ‘swirls’ work well with highlighting the focal–reminds me of gusts of wind. Nice to see your posts here in the gallery again.
