Sleeping dragon little brooch. It can be used as applique or hair accessory or a fridge magnet but I particularly recommend the brooch.... if anyone is still wearing them.

When I was a little girl my mom had quite a collection of different kinds of brooches and I loved them, I loved looking at them, wearing them and buying them for her on every occasion. They are a special kind of jewelry for me, my mom is kind of a classy lady and her accessories were classy and boring for my, but brooches... they were different they could have all the shapes: animals, flowers, abstract shapes or all of the above all at once and they were still ok to wear. Times changed a bit but my opinion about brooches stayed....

I don't know why the dragon You can say he just appeared on paper one time when I was doodling. All I know is that he looks beautiful on a dark jacket and that I will gladly wear it on any occasion unless my mom steals him for hers collection....
