Amethyst Dragon by JenniferWeiler Amethyst Dragon by JenniferWeiler
Details: :thumb276453514:

So awhile back I found a girl on Etsy that had skull necklaces which is nothing new to me, I've made them before but she utilized clay with them. SO naturally, I had to try it lol. I made a smaller version with a mink skull that I'll be posting soon before I did this one just to test it. This process has been AWESOME! I'm so in love with the finished product!! I used things I got for Christmas to make it as I haven't done a jewelry piece for me and I really wanted something crazy to wear to dinner and freak my mom out LOL jk. XD

I used a amethyst as the focal color and stone as it's always been an important one to both my mother and to me based off of it's healing properties and positive energy. This is a heavy piece but the mink skull is much smaller and lighter. I like heavy pieces that swing around a lot so naturally, I had to use the larger of the two haha. In length, it's about a foot long in the front.

Materials: gray fox skull, sculpey, acrylic paints, rhinestones, amethyst point, smokey quartz point, lavender agate cabochon, victorian era filigree pendant with glass vial, Czech glass beads, fire polished lavender glass beads, swarovksy crystals, two sizes of copper chain, two authentic coins from India taken from a broken vintage bracelet, copper clasp, dyed purple geode slice, copper wire
This piece is SOLD.

Thanks for viewing!! ^~^

Fabulous idea and beautifully executed! I've been trying to find bones and skulls in my shops of choice, but no luck so far! May have to turn to eBay again, at this rate. :p

Thanks so much! Yeah, I can usually find them at the local Ren Faires or from friends of mine that are hunters but if all else fails, Ebay and Etsy are the places to check considering there are quite a few hunters that put the parts they have no use for up for sale. (:

My fiance lives rurally, so I may pester him about finding some bones for me. He won't stop the car for ANY roadkill, though. Not even bones or feathers. :(

There you go! Though that may certainly be a problem lol. You can often find them just out walking though so perhaps he may be alright with that. (:

Maybe. I guess stopping the car isn't exactly practical. ;p

Haha! Depends on your definition of practical. ;D
