This Instructable is a step-by-step tutorial on how to make a dragon eye pendant. It will show you how to create the cabochon, which will be the eyeball itself, how to sculpt the area around the eye, how to form the wire loop that the pendant will hang on, how to paint it, and how to finish and protect it.
These pendants can have a variety of different looks, making them good for giving as a personalized gift. You can also personalize them to fit your own personality and tastes.
This pendant is great for dragon fans or fantasy fans! Fans of Skyrim, the Inheritance Cycle, Game of Thrones, or any other dragon-filled tales will be most appreciative. Fantasy nerds UNITE! :D
It is also a very unique piece of jewelry and art. The best part is, you don't have to be a good artist to create it. No experience necessary! Even if you're no Picasso, you can create a lovely work of art! ;)
Have fun and let your inner nerd shine through! ; - )
