Dragon bookmarks by Ferals Trumpet

Inspired by the Yorkshire legend of the Dragon of Loschy Wood. Like so many stories of great wurms, this one most likely alludes to earth energies whose presence is almost lost to us. The arch of the dragon’s neck hooks elegantly around the spine of your book and resembles the dragon head on the bow of a Viking ship. 

A black dragon egg of carved, smoked jade, a green agate Dragon Egg or lampwork heart. The heart is a lampwork bead, wrapped in filigree and adorned with Swarovoski crystals.
