The original was inspired by the movie Face-Off starling John Travolta and Nicolas Cage.
Because I am very concerned about copy right issues,
I discussed with my client about using the concept of a dragon money clip with working jaws,
but to create the money clip with a different style of dragon head.
The result was the first of my money clips.
After the original Money clip was created,
I received a request for a larger version.
However stylish the gentleman told me,
he wanted a clip with a deeper set of jaws.
I extended the nose and altered the scales
and retained the style of the stones set for the eyes:
the lids are a part of the settings:
a sort of channel setting yet worked into the design.
This give a more natural,
fluid look to the piece,
less stylized and more “real”.
The clip itself is 2 1/2″ by 1 1/2″ money clip
(6.8 cm by 3.8 cm)
with deep set jaws for your folding money.
The clip is available in sterling silver,
bronze and gold plated.
Stones range from red, green, and blue synthetic.
I also have black onyx and hematite cabochons for the eyes.
If you wish to “go natural”
I can also offer red Garnets or other stones on request.
