A shy or sleeping dragon, perfect to guard your hoard and help ensure that your trousers stay up when they’re supposed to. Although it appears fiercely pointed, the curved shape and smoothed spines ensure it sits comfortably.
The loop on the back will fit belts up to 1 1/4 in’ (29mm) wide.
More work in the new medium – wax carvings to be cast in metal, and some from my first batch, which I’d already received back from the casters. The dragon will turn into a belt buckle, the smaller version of the wave ring will be cast in sterling silver, and the little bird will be, I think, a little bronze statuette. There will also be copper ginko leaf buttons, barnacle and wave buttons, and a driftwood and barnacle ring. Phew!
