"White Dragon Guardian Necklace"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I find it very interesting in the ability to create such beautiful carved detail using bone. This artisan does many artistic pieces using this method which I absolutely love. Not something you see regularly. I've purchased a few of his pieces and love them all.

"SPECTACULAR"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This carved bone dragon pendant is a work of art. The artistry and intricacy defy imagination. It's a large piece and never fails to gather compliments, yet it's lightweight and very easy to wear. It's so versatile, I have mixed it with casual clothes and then changed to a silver chain for dressier occasions as well. I wish to thank Made Warlike for all the talent and care he poured into the creation of this very special dragon.

This is a gorgeous dragon pendant, and is actually a little larger than I thought it would be. This wasn't an issue for me because I still love it and have just worn it for the first time...truly stunning!

Its beautifully carved. It was more heavily tea-stained than the photo shows, but hopefully that will wear off with time.
