A Lady requested a cloak clasp combining her two favorite things:
Dragons and butterflies.
With a rather limited description we worked through a series of renderings
and then developed the final piece.
The main wings are in Bronze
while the body of the Dragon is of Sterling Silver.
Opals were places in the tips of the wings
with garnets and amethysts set into the Mandala of knot work and spirals.
Amethyst and garnets are set into the body of the dragon.
The stones were set with sterling tube and prong settings.
The piece was made to clasp with two hooks to steady the design
while wearing it.
Three button loops were placed on each side of the wings.
The proud owner of the one-of-a-kind Dragon-Butterfly Cloak Clasp
displays her creature on her cloak at DragonCon every year!

If you have a concept of a piece that you want created,
you need only ask!
