I haven't posted here for quite some time, because I have been doing more fabrication work rather than carving.

This one included quite a bit of carving, wax and directly into metal.

About three months of work.

I still have to make a ring for the jewel holder that her baby dragons are holding up.

Set with garnets and made out of silver

Her neck was carved out of wax and then sand cast.

Her tail has 32 garnets first set into silver tubes and the set into her tail.
