From literature to tattoos, jewellery to films and indeed a flag - I grew up in Wales; speaking of which who can forget Idris the Dragon from Ivor the Engine! I love to see Dragons.
I actually surprised myself when I came to write today's post to discover I had 7 dragon or dragon themed beads, it's surprising what you can forget about when you collect a lot of beads!

I picked up the Hong Kong World Tour - Dragon and Phoenix Bead when the World Tour beads became available to buy in the UK and Lucky Dragon from the People's Bead Spiritual Collection on the day they were released, it arrived just in time for me to go on holiday but that's a whole other story.
I was over the moon when I found a Limited Edition 2009 Chinese Silver Dragon for sale preloved (for non bead folk reading this, these are incredibly hard to get hold of - even more so at a fair price).

Happy Dragon and Lucky Dragon
So that took it to 4... then along came Naughty Dragon, technically he's a necklace pendant rather than a bracelet charm, and yes, he is a he!
Then again on the preloved market I was lucky to pick up Baby Dragon which is technically a splitter bead (a bead with 3 holes so you can split off a long chain necklace to shorten it) and usually to be found on my Pearl Fantasy Necklace, although I'm currently wearing Baby Dragon on a bracelet at the moment.

Finally, and last but not least is my Story by Kranz and Ziegler Dragon, I just love the way the foot (or is that an arm?) that are visible hold onto the lambskin bracelet!

So now everyone's up to date with my current Dragons... on my ultimate Dragons Wish List (read = never going to happen) is a Faerybeads Dragon lock... along with most of their Through the Magical Door Collection... anyone got a money tree?
Anyone else obsessed with Dragons? Or is it just me...
