Birthstone Collection: October



This dragon represents October in my birthstone collection. One of October's birthstones is tourmaline (specifically, pink tourmaline), so this dragon holds a light pink rhinestone gem and has a matching gem on her forehead. In keeping with tourmaline's coloration, this dragon has a bright magenta body, while her accents are a mix of pearly white and dark green.

I know, I know, you were all expecting opal, right? I didn't realize when making these that there is such a strong association between October and opal, and it was easier to find a pink gem than an opalescent one. So I don't know, maybe I'll have to try again on this one.

BTW, tourmaline is one of my favorite gems, and I was really excited to make a tourmaline dragon. In fact, it's the first birthstone dragon that I attempted to make once my rhinestone gems arrived. The one pictured here is the second one I've made though, as the first one was pretty strange and not worthy of joining the lineup.

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

Hi Lindy!  Back again to let you know that I've featured your work in a post called October Birthstone Dragons by Various Artists on my dragon artwork blog (with proper attribution and links back, of course).  I'm so happy you did a Tourmaline, there were too many Opals out there already, lol.  You can find me at Writing Dragons, and this feature here.  Keep up the brilliant work!
