    Creel U !! Another Fabulous Dragon!! I love this necklace, I’m not sure which one I like better, my goodness! Those turqoise flakes are so unique, if you don’t mind my asking – where did you get/find them?! I love them. Great choice of beads, your whole design is so well put together. A Favorite for sure, thank you!

    I love the shades of blue in this beautiful necklace. And the dragon pendant is perfect. The whole thing makes me feel like I am in a dream. A dream of the sea and the ancient world where dragons lived. It really speaks to a Pisces like me.

    I like the top-drills you placed near the focal! They set a natural & untamed tone for the design which is exactly what the sea can be with its large waves & dangers. Perfect choice of colors ranging in varying depths of dark greenish-blues. Your careful selection of elements has made an impressive piece.

    Love you guys! Thank you for the encouragement! The large turquoise flakes were a gift from a beading friend who stopped beading and gave me her stash. I have looked for them at a few online stores I frequent and have found no more :(
