And this is the dragon I made -- took about a week.
Her name is Amy, and Amy loves her amythyst! There's her large rock and several smaller ones in the ground around her -- looks like she found a good place to collect them from.
She has mother-of-pearl as plates along the spine, and green and purple freshwater pearl accents. She's my first dragon, but don't worry, Amy will have lots of friends soon!
I also made a lion's head and some filigree beads (which my Mom helped on) over the weekend that look pretty cool, but I don't have pictures of them yet.
