Birthstone Collection: December



This dragon represents December in my birthstone collection. December's birthstone is either blue zircon or turquoise, and this dragon sports a bit of both. He is holding a blue zircon rhinestone gem and has a matching gem on his forehead, while his belly is made out of inlaid turquoise chips. His body is turquoise blue and he has black accents - December is a dignified fellow!

I'd originally planned this dragon around turquoise, but the rhinestones that I ordered really don't look right for turquoise. Plus, they were labelled as blue zircon so I'm not sure who I thought I was going to fool besides myself... <_< Fortunately, I found a bag of turquoise chips that I'd completely forgotten about so I was able to add some of those in. This guy gets a bit of both gemstones, which I think is good?

This dragon is a repeatable design available for purchase on Etsy. You can find additional photos and sales information at his listing.

Hi Lindy!  One more time, I just wanted to let you know that I've featured your work in a post called December Birthstone Dragons by Various Artists on my dragon artwork blog (with proper attribution and links back, of course).  What can I say, I'm just a superfan!  I love your captions too... "I'm not sure who I thought I was going to fool besides myself..." :D (Big Grin)   It turned out great with the dual stones.  As always, you can find me at Writing Dragons, and this feature here.  Keep up the fantastic work!
