Chinese Silver Dragon Bead Necklace

These silver dragon beads surprised and amazed me when I first saw them…after 10 years of research it is always a pleasure to see something so unique.

The smaller (14mm) silver melon beads and clasp appear in other necklaces…

but the 13 huge 22mm ( 28mm with stems) silver beads are the first that we have ever seen.

Beautiful detail and workmanship! Such pleasure to look at… and wear!
