Default Ooooh! Glass dragons!

I have wanted one of these for years, especially the big ones, I've seen the artist at fayres and they look so lovely but I'm afraid I'd break them!

Very nice, not only the dragons, but all the other sculptures too.

WOW WOW WOW Flamecat those are incredibly beautiful and delicate. I can't even imagine how difficult those sculptures are to make. I have watched glass blowers and sculptures in the past, and nothing I have seen being done or for sale come close to these beauties.
Thankfully [not only because of the price, but because of the possible breakage with glass dragons] my collection of dragons tends to the softer plush kinds...those alone are bad enough on my budget.

I saw (did not get) a glass dragon necklace. I would be scared to wear it.

Flamecat...I really do have a weakness for Dragons all kinds of
dragons...along with my *Cuddle Wing* of plush dragons...I also
have pewter, resin, rubber and a couple of silk dragons, that are
actually two huge kites, one of which is over six feet wide.

Maybe we should get a thread going for Christmas, where we
can post photos of all our different dragons...or collections of
Dragons and share them...kind of a
*Christmas of Dragons*...
