How this was made:
The Cancer personality (that this dragon is depicting) is one of warmth, nurturing kindness, fierce protectiveness and a love of safety and security. As it belongs to the water element (associated with emotions) Cancerians have a rich emotional life. Most of their emotions are based on joy, love and happiness, but if you cross one, they are not incapable of defending themselves with their fearsome pincers! More often than not though, their temper only appears in defense of others - to protect the weak and the vulnerable. Cancerians therefore, have a heart of gold and want to fight for the happiness and positive emotions of everyone around them, whilst nurturing their own sense of safety through their love of their home.
As the symbol of Cancer is the crab, this dragon has various crab-like attributes. It has large crab like pincers to defend and protect, and large portions of its body are that rusty crustacian colour, whilst beautiful blues, signifying the water element it belongs to, help to cool everything down and bring a sense of calm to the loving and emotional Cancer.

Zodiac Dragon - Cancer
Any finished sculpture or item of jewellery of mine that you receive, should be relatively strong, but not indestructible. As such, adequate care should be taken to ensure that the piece is out of reach of pets, children, and the possibility of being dropped, as you would with any other fragile ornament in the home. That being said, it will be certainly be strong enough for moderate handling as you examine it and admire its unique features! :)
Will I have to pay extra for shipping/postage?
There is no additional charge for postage - all is included in the price of the dragon.
How many creations can I recieve from you in one go?
In one parcel, there will be sent a maximum of two to three creations, depending on their size. If you feel like going on a larger shopping spree (and I would not mind if you did!) expect to recieve two or three at a time, in different parcels that may be delivered on different days, depending on whether the creations you have ordered differ in the time they need to be prepared before posting (for instance, if one of your purchases includes a made-to-order item). Sending a couple of creations at a time in smaller packages is to keep postage costs down on my end, as I do not charge extra for postage, and one large parcel costs far more to send than a fewer smaller ones.
How long will my order take to get to me?
If you live in the UK (where I am based) you can expect your parcel to arrive within one to two weeks once I have posted it off. If you live in the US, your parcel will likely take two to three weeks to arrive after I have sent it. It is important that these shipping times are taken into account if the item is needed before a certain deadline (e.g as a birthday present) as well as if you have purchased a made-to-order item.
What is the difference between waiting for a made-to-order item and waiting for a pre-made item?
If the item you have ordered is classed as "made-to-order", that could add a maximum of an extra week on to the time it will take to reach you, from the moment of purchase (due to the time it will take me to hand-craft your purchase from scratch). Don't worry though - if the item you want is made-to-order, it will say in big letters at the top of the item's description. If your item does not say anything about it being made-to-order in the description, then you can assume that it is a pre-made creation, and therefore will be ready to be posted to you in a maximum of two to three days time.
