Sterling Silver, Cord

This fantasy jewelry pendant features a dragon who has flown so far and high that he has reached the moon, where he's taking a moment to rest and visit with his celestial friend.

This mystical pendant was created using the lost-wax casting method. After various designs and sketches were completed the dragon and moon were 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.

The pendant is 7/8 inch wide by 1 7/8 inch tall (to the tip of his tail). A 16 inch black cord is included, for a high quality sterling silver chain please see https://www.etsy.com/listing/244190048/interlocking-sterling-silver-chain or https://www.etsy.com/listing/244190540/woven-style-sterling-silver-chain

The strength and endurance of the dragon protects, while the moons energy enlightens and directs. Together they make for a truly enchanting necklace.
