"White Dragon Guardian Necklace"

I find it very interesting in the ability to create such beautiful carved detail using bone. This artisan does many artistic pieces using this method which I absolutely love. Not something you see regularly. I've purchased a few of his pieces and love them all.

"LOVE my dragon pendant!!"

This is a gorgeous dragon pendant, and is actually a little larger than I thought it would be. This wasn't an issue for me because I still love it and have just worn it for the first time...truly stunning!

"SPECTACULAR"

This carved bone dragon pendant is a work of art. The artistry and intricacy defy imagination. It's a large piece and never fails to gather compliments, yet it's lightweight and very easy to wear. It's so versatile, I have mixed it with casual clothes and then changed to a silver chain for dressier occasions as well. I wish to thank Made Warlike for all the talent and care he poured into the creation of this very special dragon.

"Product recieved"

Hello,first off the speed of delivery and the comunication from the seller was perfect (probably one of the best i ever saw ) It arrived in around 4-5 days well paqued (thou the paquage was slightly crushed at one side) There was a card from the seller and some extras quite nice . But trouble start with the pendant itself : First the product was curved and not a little bit ,granted for a bone product its hard to make it perfect straight . But the curvature is quite prononced and its curves outward (making it even more ovious) Another smal negative point is the colors is less white then on the picture its more of a yellow white instead of a pure white. In total the delivery and communication was amazing,but the product was les quality then expected thou somewhat acseptable considering its a bone product

"A beautiful necklace to wear with casual clothing."

Beautilful Pendant, outstanding carving. A way to let Westerners know that the dragon is a positive and protective force in Eastern cultures.

"Wonderful Gift"

Bought this item as a Christmas/Birthday gift (to come) for my nephew, who likes all things dragon. Have not yet given it to him --- may even decide to keep it for myself! The carving is very detailed and intricate, but the back is smooth, and the cord is adjustable, so will be the perfect length for anyoccasion. I am well-pleased with this as a gift and the price was really GREAT!!

"Beautifully carved!"

I purchased this piece because Im very fond of the dragon motif, and this carved dragon didnt disappoint. The carving is lovely. However, it came on a thin double brown leather cord (unlike the photo online) that is very short without an obvious way to open it, and its impossible to get it over my head. Ill have to cut it and put it on a different cord or chain. This is why I didnt give the piece 5 stars.

"Guardian Dragon necklace"

Really unique & special piece. Intricately carved with great detail. I love dragon jewelry and this piece is completely outstanding. One request would be to use a different cord, softer & a bit thicker, perhaps crocheted.
