    Default Wanting a unique pendant

    After looking and buying my wife a black pearl pendant it has rekindled my want for a pendant of my own. I would like a white gold dragon's claw holding a black pearl. Does anyone know of anybody that would have or be able to create such a pendant?

    You should contact Ashley from PurePearls.com. I know she specializes in drawing out designs and creating them from scratch. She is a member here.

    I could try and catch a dragon for you. But you might want something quicker than that!!!

    Wow, that is great to know. I have a antique emerald pendant which needs a gold surround and jewellers here are so expensive. I think it would be cheaper for me to send it to Ashley for her to work out a design for me. You would think I would be able to draw up what I wanted but all my designs are done in my head as I draw like a 5 year old. It is true unfortunately. But and maybe because of that I can visulalise perfectly.

    Great information. I will get around to contacting Ashley after Christmas. I am sure she is too busy at the moment and I know I am. Now I need to sell more to pay for a beautiful gold surround.

    Thanks all.

    This piece came to mind with the talon design: https://www.pearl-guide.com/forum/co...s-stuff-4.html Josh Bazar designed it.

    Very masculine to my mind, something similar might not be difficult.

    Here's a designer whose work I admire: http://www.etsy.com/shop/billyblue22...me=billyblue22

    Yeah, I know, pretty racy for this old gal, (I hear you all snickering) but I love the Victorian key hole! Oh, there's a few items for Sheri (La Corsetiere) here too!
