The majestic dragon who is a guardian as well as a friend, Penumbra, sits atop a magical stone of Druzy Chalcedony in this striking fantasy jewelry pendant; the character of the pose, facial expression and stone all work together to make this a truly wonderful piece of dragon jewelry. The dragon’s name, Penumbra, means "shadow on the moon" and this is reflected in the type of stone that has been used to accent the piece. Druzy refers to the tiny crystals that cover the face of the stone; unfortunately photography doesn’t capture the beautiful sparkle, especially when viewed in sunlight. The Druzy crystals cover the surface of the Chalcedony stone; together they can provide energies to provide healing and strength, uplift spirits, give protection and more.
I started by creating a detailed pencil drawing to refine my idea and layout the design of the piece of fantasy jewelry. I then begin to sculpt everything in wax, first by addressing the overall composition, then proportion and musculature of the individual, lastly overlaying all of it with detailing. This was a very time and labor intensive process; including facial expression and applying the scales of the dragon one at a time. When sculpting was complete it was cast using the lost wax method in sterling silver. A patina was applied in two parts to give some areas a darker finish than others, at times tints of blues and purples can be achieved providing for contrast and interest. This was followed by hand polishing and an application of Renaissance Wax to protect the finish and guard against tarnish.
Sculpted three dimensionally the cord threads between the dragons wings, which acts as the bail for the dragon pendant; with the height being 2 ¼ inches and the width 1 ¼ (measured at the outermost points).
An 18 inch braided leather cord is included with the fantasy jewelry pendant. Penumbra also looks amazing when combined with the vine entwined neckwire, purchase both together and save 10% off the price when purchased separately.
NOTE: The pendant and stone pictured in the first photograph and in the close up photograph is what you will receive, the photos of the dragon pendant on the model depict accurate dimension and scale, but feature different stones and are no longer available. All stones for this fantasy pendant are Druzy Chalcedony, but each has a unique look. Contact me if you want to see what other stones are available.
