How this was made:This beautiful dragon is made from polymerclay, sculpted around an aluminium craft wire armature, then brushed with mica powders before baking. It was then painted with green and blue glitters after baking. After this it was coated with a layer of epoxy resin to ensure maximum durability of its spines and limbs.
Griyon is the guardian of sea stones, pebbles and sea glass. For this reason, he lives in the corner of the water region nearest the earth region, where the sea meets the land in the form of beaches and rock pools. Here he finds many treasures that have been washed up on the shore. Near the sea, Griyon has his own rock cave where he sits contentedly with his enourmous collection of mysterious objects he has discovered over the years - sea glass in all colours, messages in bottles, pebbles in every shape and colour, shells and even fossils. Griyon would make the perfetc companion for anyone who loves the mysteries of the sea, its beaches, and all the wonders it has yet to offer us!

'Griyon' - the granite water dragon
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 (which may take up to a week for me to prepare beforehand if you have selected any extra additions from the drop-down menu). If you live in the US, your parcel will likely take two to three weeks to arrive after I have sent it out. 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 week or less.
