Your keys (or jewelry) will be in security on these forged dragon hooks.

First, let's talk about the dragon's head, it started out as 1/2" square stock steel and came to life on the anvil under the hammer blows at a yellow/orange heat. Details were then added using hand held punches that I made.

After the head is complete, it's back to the fire to heat and form the hook with a small belly at the end so there is no sharp, pointy tip at the hook end. (all made with the hand hammer)... I then heated the middle section and made a decorative twist (before twisting, I made a groove in the metal, this groove is incorporated in the twist and adds a very nice decorative feature to the twisted metal)...
Last hammer blow on the dragon is my logo signature "Naz".

For the wings, I drew them and had them laser cut., braught them to an orange heat in the forge and hammered them all around to give them texture and match the hand forged dragon.

Next, I forged six smaller hooks and mig welded them to the wings from behind to keep everything clean. I then added to each a brass rivet that I hand hammered from behind. The rivets add extra strenght and are very decorative.

Time to join the dragon to it's wings. I used a large iron rivet and hand hammered it from behind followed by two spot welds, again from behind.

I put a lot of importance in cleaning my items after they have been hammered, bent into shape, and "in and out" of the fire numerous times...I acheive the clean look you see in the photos by using the wire wheel and sandpaper, this leaves each item with a clean attractive look that is perfect for gift giving...

After cleaning, I clear coated the dragon rack for protection and to keep the raw iron look.


This signed metal sculpture is a highly decorative and functional piece of art that has many useful purposes :key hooks, jewelry rack, etc...


Since all my dragons are hand forged one at a time, they each have their own personality and character, not one is the same.For this reason, they each have their own personal listing, this listing is for the forged dragon key/jewelry rack you see in the photos above.


Measurements are 11" high and 11 1/4" wide.

Included are 4 decorative wood screws.

This item is ready to ship.
