Mezzanotte is a Nipper Dragon with custom glass eyes, bought and shipped to me by the dragon purchaser.
I am thinking of using glass eyes for a few of the largest dragons, it would be more work- getting the eyes set into a head requires washers and wire or cotter pins, but the effect is amazing. (these are an artist’s custom printed eyes and are lovely)
While I do know how to make similar eyes, printing eyes that are glued onto the back of a glass cabochon, then set into a bezel backing with a loop on the back…. but it would add to the final cost. Buying them from Etsy would save me time, but still add $20 to the cost of a dragon…I’m leaning towards just buying them for special dragons.
The Moon Dragons have found homes, and will be shipped out ASAP. I’ll have the Ryder Dragons finished and ready to list on Monday, – two – the purple and the grey have already been reserved.
3 Moons, 2 Silver Moons , 1 purple Guardians, 5 Ryders – teal, grey, black, rainbow, black/white swirl and 1 black/blue Nipper.
Etsy decreed it was time to revamp the Esty store…spent 3 hours this morning creating and adding a new banner…. now back to sewing.
