How this was made:This beautiful zodiac dragon was handsculpted with polymerclay around a wire armature, then painted with acrylics and glitters before being glazed once with polyurethane varnish and again with epoxy resin, to ensure maximum strength and durability of its spines and limbs.
The Libra personality (that this zodiac dragon is based on) is one of balance, beauty, justice and fairness. Libra is impeccable at knowing who is right and who is wrong in any conflict - but their ultimate wish is for there to be a utopia of harmony and peace in the world, the thought of which inspires many artistic visions in them. Their agile minds are always working tirelessly to create a more beautiful world.
Here the Libra dragon is proudly holding his scales, the symbol of the zodiac sign of Libra, and the method by which he ensures balance in all things. He is confident in his ability to make balanced decisions and to assess the good and bad deeds of others with a fair and compassionate mindset. His colours consist of shades of white, grey and blue, that are in tandem with the Libra element of air, as well as dazzling gold scales that reflect the impressiveness of his mental clarity in virtually all matters.

Zodiac Dragon - Libra
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.
