Dragon Spirit Pendant with Ocean Jasper in Sterling Silver
Celebrate your fierce spirit and embrace your inner demons. We all have a dark side, and it can be breathtakingly beautiful! This detailed solid sterling silver dragon was created with a melted ball of sterling silver scrap, an impression die, and an hour-long session with my 20 ton hydraulic press. It's quite a workout! He is set on a double layer of 22 gauge sterling silver sheet. Beneath him is an amazing ocean jasper cabochon with rusty orange/mustard yellow orbs floating in an olive green matrix. There is even a small section of raw quartz druzy included in this incredible stone. The jasper is also set on a double layer of sterling silver sheet, with a serrated bezel. Both the stone and the dragon have been encircled by textured sterling silver wire. Three tiny sterling silver balls have been soldered between for visual and textural interest. The whole piece is oxidized in liver of sulphur, and polished to bring out highlights. Oxidized 18" silver rolo chain with lobster clasp closure.
