Amazingly detailed, openwork dragon pendant, carefully designed, hand carved by me and then made in sterling silver. Adorned with a lovely, natural Ethiopian opal (5.5 mm) or a gorgeous moonstone (further photos) - you choose. It is a part of my collection celebrating ancient myths, legends and folklore. Total length (including carved, articulated bail) is 5.4 cm (2.12 in). It's width in the widest place is 3 cm (1.18 in). You'll be amazed by how subtle and fantastically detailed this piece is.

Dragons are present in myths and legends all over the world. They are always mighty, fierce, impressive creatures, often guarding treasures or... secrets. In some stories they are mischievious, deceiving, but always very intelligent. A dragon can be a very complex symbol. For me it tells a story about strength, hidden treasures and inner fire that we need to discover, rekindle or sustain. I sculpted my dragon in a very dynamic pose. He is guarding his magical treasure, protecting it from unexpected visitors. At the back of the pendant, inside dragon's belly you will find a small, symbolic flame - our inner fire. This pendant is oxidized and polished to create nice contrast between dark and light silver. 

My jewellery is a tribute to Mother Nature's beautiful creations. Just look around - all this amazing abundance of forms and textures - so strikingly beautiful and inspiring. I try to convey this feeling of awe over Nature's creations into my jewellery. Thank you for looking at my pieces. The pendant comes with a vegan cord. This piece is based on my original artwork - all rights reserved. If you would like to have a pendant like this one, but with a different stone than opal or a moonstone, let me know. I can make one just for you! If you have any questions, please ask.

My pendant „Lair of visions” was published in AMCAW calendar (Alliance for Metal Clay Arts Worldwide) for 2021.  This piece is made of sterling silver, milled sterling sheet, fine silver bezel wire, electroplated gold, three labradorites and two peridots. This pendant was hand sculpted using simple tools. No moulds. Every element was formed from scratch. It’s a combination of sculpting in wet clay, slip painting and dry contruction. Stone settings were soldered after firing. The bail was constructed from milled metal, combined with an ornamental element sculpted in metal clay - the elements were soldered together. This piece is a poetic reminiscence of my strolls and meditations in the forest. Forest and its gifts as a source of vision
Pendant „Sun Godddes" was published in the cycle „The best of 2019” by AMCAW - Alliance for Metal Clay Arts Worldwide. The pendant is made of sterling silver and adorned with ambers, hand cut by me and a little bit of gold.  Barbara Cetrangolo Rivolta wrote about this piece: "In a year with many artists creating innovative new work in metal clay, several artists captivated us with their artistic vision and skill. It’s our pleasure to share the inspiring work of these artists in AMCAW’s Best of 2019. We found Anna Mazon’s Sun Goddess pendant to be exceptionally intriguing. The construction of the piece - sculpted in sterling silver, highlighted in gold, and set with amber - allows for the interplay of light and dark in an endlessly fascinating way. Anna’s strong interest in Mother Nature, mythology, ancient cultures and literature all come into play. She says of her piece, "Sun is the center of our solar system, the source of light, warmth and all life. Tireless wanderers travel around it - planets, comets, asteroids on their never-ending elliptical trails. Sun is there for us every day, with its ancient wisdom and nourishing energy. It is also a vortex of fiery chaos, inferno of ongoing nuclear fusion in its center - powerful and terrifying." Anna is known for her strong but light-weight metal clay construction techniques. She stretches herself in this work by setting the beautiful translucent amber—chosen for its color and unusual pattern—on the reverse of the piece in order to backlight it."
