This dragon will be large and fierce one day, but right now he's just hatched and not even all the way out of his shell.
This fantasy pendant was created using the lost-wax casting method. After various designs and sketches were completed the dragon was sculpted out of wax. This process takes many enjoyable hours to create a strong overall design, along with precise detail -- note the individual scales on the dragon. When sculpting is complete the wax is invested in plaster and put in a kiln for a burnout cycle, the wax melts and molten silver is poured into the void where the wax used to be. It is cooled for a few minutes, then quenched in water, the plaster breaks away leaving the cast metal. Then excess metal is removed and the piece is given a rough polish. The silver is then oxidized (antiqued) to highlight the detail of the work before it receives a final buff.
This magical pendant is 7/8" tall x 3/4" wide, see the size in relationship to the penny. A 16 inch cord is included.

First things first: The design of this pendant is adorable. This little one makes me want to give it a chin rub :) and I am sure it will be worn often (already is :) & I like the cord, too). I would like to note just one thing: My baby dragon's foreleg is much smoother than shown in pictures 1 to 3 (where leg and neck are different but not as much) which makes it visually somewhat less coherent (making the leg look a little bit like a human forearm). I hope this is not too picky a remark (I am just hoping to give feedback on a detail). Thank you for this cute, cute baby dragon! It is loved already.

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I LOVE my little dragon. Such incredible work. The detail is amazing. Skillfully constructed and packaged thoroughly. It's gotta be one of the coolest things to ever appear on this site. I also appreciated the note and crystal ;) I highly recommend this shop. Sharon is a seriously great artist. Whimsical ~
