This steampunk dragon necklace features a brass dragon who seems ready to attack time itself! The dragon is created of antiqued brass with finely detailed scales, spine, legs, and tail fin. The dragon’s mouth is open and it is coiled, seeming ready to attack. To create the pendant, I layered gears, cogs, a clock hand and a central gear which spins. The dragon was then set so it would seem to circle the clockworks.
The pendant is suspended from a necklace of deep grey Czech tube beads with a marbled stone look. The tube beads are interspersed with two types of corrugated beads with some small filigreed beads added for texture. The necklace closes with a hook clasp.
The necklace measures 21 ½ inches in length, and the pendant measures 2 ¾ by 1 ½ inches. The Chinese Dragon is seen as the ultimate symbol of good fortune. It also symbolizes courage, heroism, nobility, boldness, and the power to overcome obstacles. The gears, cogs, and clockwork elements shift the traditional symbolism of the dragon into the fantastical world of steampunk and philosophical discussions of time. Symbolism aside, this great-looking steampunk necklace will add a touch of the fierce to your look!
