Wyvern Griffon Dragon Silver Pendant Necklace with Medieval Flair
Come not between the dragon, and his wrath. (William Shakespeare, King Lear)
The Story of This Jewelry: When I was a child, I was fascinated by all things medieval as well as fantastical creatures. I never outgrew my love for these things. This piece pays homage to the Wyvern, a two-legged dragon.
I designed and created this unique pendant by cutting the wyvern out of 14k gold-fill sheet using a jeweler's saw.
I did the same for the sterling silver back plate, then soldered the two together.
A 10mm faceted Prehnite stone is bezel set within the curling dragon's tale.
The pendant is about 1½ inches at its greatest diameter. You will select your choice of length for the sterling silver chain.
To many, this also represents a griffon (or gryphon). Definitely a majestic beast from ancient lore, apparently protecting one of his jewels. Perfect for SCA or anyone with an affinity for stories of great adventures with magical creatures.
