Diamond Birthstone Dragon - Rework by HowManyDragons Diamond Birthstone Dragon - Rework by HowManyDragons
I made a birthstone dragon set a few years ago, and I've been selling them as repeatable designs on Etsy ever since. Every now and then, I need to update the photos in my shop because the dragons start to look dated, and at long last, it was time for April's diamond dragon to get a rework. This dragon's body is still a bright, glittery white, and she retains the crystal clear rhinestone gems down her back and in her wings, but I redid the pose so that the birthstone gem would be more easily seen.

I also added silver horns and wings as a color option. I'd originally used just gold because I really like the contrast, but I'm really more of a silver person, so it seemed right to add another possibility for silver lovers. Which color combination do you prefer? 


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

Pretty pretty gemstone dragons

Honestly, I feel like the silver matches the diamond theme more, but the gold and white combination is just gorgeous :).

Cute as always! I like the little coloured specks in the white, whatever those are

Yes! The clay comes like that, actually - it's Premo's Frost White Glitter.

The gold, as you said, has a better contrast, but the silver blends nicely. I think it'll be a personal choice for each person on which one they pick. Lovely work as always.

I'm hoping to see if buyers prefer one combination over the other. So far, results are mixed. :)

I personally prefer gold, but that's because yellow is my favorite color.  But silver is also pretty cool.
