I took a big photo to show the details of this painting. Just remember, that stone size is 5x3.5x2.5 cm! It's very small painting! It was hard to work with semi transparent stone. And it was too hard because I wanted to draw many feathers on a small stone^^' The dragon looks like a bald eagle, it was a part of commission. Firstly I didn't want to make feathers on the neck, but later I thought, that the dragon will be more cuter with them.
Stone: cherry quartz. Glass beads and metallic jewelery. Painting is done by tempera and is covered by a special lacquer for the damage protection.
Oh wow. This is an absolutely fantastic piece. It's quite impressive how you paint the details. You must have a very steady hand and a lot of patience. The items you produce are always so beautiful, and I really enjoy looking at them. Your style is very pretty and it's unique too, making it even more pleasing to the eye. I also like your use of jewels on the necklace, it fits in with the charm very well and matches some of the tones. Good job, very successful piece.
