So this would be a prototype attempt at a dragon bracelet (and a legless version, at that). I just wanted to test something. And I rather liked the idea of the hooking mechanism being both visible, and also part of the critter. He works quite well, actually, and I'm testing out exactly how he works before I try again. I do think the next one with have a wire tail (for neatness alone, really) and I'll be experimenting with wire legs and feet... well, we'll see.
Also. For the most part, Dias is copper--but there are subtle gold diamonds spiraling around him. The gold explodes in the tail so it's a bit more noticeable, but it's really hard to photograph.
