Birthstone Collection: September



This dragon represents September in my birthstone collection. September's birthstone is sapphire, so this dragon carefully cradles a bright blue rhinestone gem in her paws. In keeping with the theme, this dragon is a bright, glittery blue with translucent blue accents. A small, sapphire-colored rhinestone decorates her forehead and she also has a circle of tiny blue rhinestones on each flank for a touch of extra sparkle. I deliberately styled the September and July dragons to look similar to each other, because they're different hues of corundum - a ruby is just a red sapphire. So they're twinsies. :meow:

This blue is yet another fantastic discontinued color - I can't ever decide if I like Premo's blue pearl or green pearl more. Though I can definitely say that I like the blue pearl + translucent mix the best, as far as translucents go. I really like how the horns turned out on this one, though next time I'll try to make the light blue horns a bit less opaque.

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

Yup, it’s official. Admiring this beauty with hyper-fixation yet again (despite not being my birth stone); I’m pretty sure that electric deep blue is my favorite color ever, with or without Premo Pearl marbling. I‘ve always been a blue person but some shades are better than others and this is no exception! I had yet another dream last night about the original Blue Pearl clay and had to come back here XD
