Dragon chain by StephaniePride Dragon chain by StephaniePride
This Necklace is FOR SALE in my Etsy Store PhoenixDesign Link

This Neckchain is one of my major works from my final year of my Jewellery trade Certificate course.

It is solid sterling silver. the stones are Blue Topaz. Each head was cast using the lost wax technique and has a hook on the back which the ring hangs from. The ring is completely detachable. I have occasionally worn it with one head/hook, caught on the chain just above the other dragon head, which gives it a slightly more 'casual' look. There is also a matching brooch which is also in my gallery.


If you wish to comission something similar (or completely different), drop me a line..... :D

EDIT - Thankyou. All of you! I'm a little stunned at how many faves this has got. My tutor didn't like the design at all, kept trying to get me to do something else! Of course he didn't like anything I designed that had a fantasy theme, so I pretty much ignored him. I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes it.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!

Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.

Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.

Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im sorry

Would you ever think of making anything similar to sell...? :] And if so, for how much? (Sorry if this question has already been asked)

I have been thinking of returning to this concept (it's easily my most popular item!) it's just a matter of finding the time, re-gathering the tools etc. it's so long since I did any real casting... But more and more I'm thinking I should go back to it. I never meant to stop, I just got distracted ;P

As for the price, this piece sold for around $350 about 4 years ago I think. The price of silver has risen since then so these days it would be closer to $400

That's amazing, and if your tutor can act bias about this it's just...it doesn't seem quite as helpful...I don't know, but this is the kind of jewelry I'd buy ;3

I sold this one for Au$350 about three years ago. While I wouldn't make an exact copy of this I am planning on making some similar items, using different 'heads', early next year which I will be selling for a similar price.

This is a late devious thought, considering the last one was in 2006, but I wanted to post it anyway. I bet you had fun spiralling the wire, was it finicky work? I'm in a Certificate course for an apprenticeship, but I haven't been doing it for as long as you. Have you finished the course?

The dragons are not used enough in sterling silver in my opinion, so it was nice to see you've encorporated two into the necklace ;) I think it would add mysterie and magic if you use a fire topaz or a rainbow topaz. Really great idea of yours. They almost remind me of forest dragons due to their ears.

Sum-up - Nice work ^^ Look forward to seeing more.
