Dragon Birthstone SAL - October/Opal by jijikit Dragon Birthstone SAL - October/Opal by jijikit



Dragon #10 in the Birthstone Dragon SAL: www.etsy.com/listing/498195209…
This month's dragon is a Ryu or Tatsu and are from Japan.  According to the designer, "These dragons share a lot with their Chinese cousin  (see June), including their status as elemental deities.  Ryu, though, are mostly water deities and are often depicted more sinuous like a serpent....One of the easiest ways to tell Ryu and Long apart is that Ryu will always have only three toes."

This month you had a choice between an Opal version and a Tourmaline.  I had originally chosen the Tourmaline because I liked the dark pink color and how the ridge was green (it was described as being "watermelon-like") but El was insistent the Opal would look better; that it was prettier.  It was ALSO made of a lot of light pastel colors.  It was a bit havoc on my eyes but I eventually got it done.  She is pretty but I still like the Tourmaline one.  Maybe I can make it for an ornament or something later. 

Only 2 more to go!  WOOHOO!!! WOOT- Emoticon

I'm about to start November.  I'm tempted to fore go all other projects and just bust out the two last dragons.  This is a wonderful SAL but also it will be off my craft desk and 2018 list!  :D
