"Dragon 's Daughter"

My niece loves anything dragon's so, I bought this as a Christmas gift for her. It's a bit of a larger piece but, details are wonderful. I think she will enjoy it.

"Serenely Dramatic"

Serenity with drama, this lovely face embraced by a dragon is beautiful. Small enough to rest on the throat choker length,.

"Didnt look as good as in photo"

Somehow it was just to long for me -- as a necklace, its a pretty large piece. It also didnt look as good as the photo -- I couldnt even exactly find the dragon! Worst of all, the packaging and the item both reeked of a smell that seemed like a combination of mildew and chemicals.
