Sterling silver - 14k gold - Dragon 'Pen Topper' by Dans-Magic Sterling silver - 14k gold - Dragon 'Pen Topper' by Dans-Magic

Close up of this: Sterling silver 'Pen Dragon' by Dans-Magic

Sterling silver and 14k yellow gold dragon with a citrine eye.

Largest piece of jewelry I've ever made. It is a removable pen topper that sits atop a sterling silver and 14k gold fountain pen. I was sent a writing pen and made a custom dragon to wrap around it. The dragon is secured to the pen by the cap so it doesn't fall off.

The dragon is solid, hasn't been hollowed out at all. I also made a custom pen holder for it to lay on.

The dragon was around 4+ oz. and approx 4 inches tall.

Pink color is my skin being reflected onto the piece as I was holding the pen for the photos.

That is incredible, I love the scale detail on all of his body and especially the ridge scales on the tail. The design of the wings is interesting, the lack of texture on the... tendons? Not sure how to refer to them, contrasts with the rough texture of the wings itself and gives them depth and I like it. Now if only you made a custom pen to go with that and the holder...

Wow I couldn't help but read it Pendragon then I tried to find if I'm the only one :P Saw your comment
Pendragon or Pen Draig, meaning "head dragon" or "chief dragon" (a figurative title referring to status as a leader), is the name of several traditional Kings of the Britons: Ambrosius Aurelianus, Uther Pendragon - because he was inspired by a dragon-shaped comet, King Arthur, son of Uther, Maelgwn of Gwynedd, described by Gildas as the "dragon of the island" (gotta love wiki)
