Custom Made Labradorite Daenerys Targaryen Necklace


This huge labradorite pendant necklace was made for a customer who wanted a Game of Thrones inspired piece. I have never seen the show, but she did send me some pictures of the character this necklace is suppose to represent. 

I used raw brass and raw copper wire to create this necklace. The brass scrolls represent the character's filigree jewelry. The copper ribbons look like those that would adorn a Medieval crest. The reptilian wire weave around the sides of the stone represent the dragon eggs that the character collects. The hand forged hook and eye clasps are made of recycled copper wire. At the back hangs a brass and copper "dragon egg" charm that I made from howlite and yellow turquoise stones. It is suspended on gray silk ribbon and double raw copper rolo chains. 
I don't think I've ever used my torch this much in the creation of a piece of jewelry, but it sure was challenging and FUN!

This is a close-up picture of the mini dragon's egg charm that hangs on the back of the clasp. The inside of the egg is yellow turquoise stone, the ball is white howlite with a little time in the flame to give it color gradient.
