Dreams of Pandora: The Dragon Rider

This is the next necklace of the "Dreams of Pandora" series (see Avatar The Movie for details). At the same time, it is the latest of "my own, my precioussssssss" series as well: it was intended for display in my Etsy store, but I just do not want to part from it.

I just wanted to make my version of Toruk Makto: the Dragon Rider of Pandora. It is a bit like ancient people were recording stories in their dress embellishments - I was telling my story about Avatar ;)

Here is toruk, and an ikran flying besides it:


Here are the eyes of Jake and Neytiri:


There also are the braid of Na'vi and the holy tree of Eiwa:


And here is myself, exhausted by writing FREAKING scientific grant applications...


Two more weeks of this madness and the last application must be turned in. Wish me luck, ppl!

This is just gorgeous Olga. I love your work, always interesting and always different. The embellished collar bit is fabulous and the whole idea of a piece telling a story is just great.

Wow that is incredible!! I can see why you don't want to part with it! What a neat interpretation of the movie. Very inspiring!

Olga, my dear! This is... SO amazing! I totally understand that you turn into Gollum and keep it all to yourself! And, like The Ring, other people WILL want to steal it from you... ;)
