Game of Thrones Jewelry Challenge - I'm All About the Dragons



Game of Thrones Jewelry Challenge

Heather Powers of Humblebeads is hosting a jewelry challenge based on one of my favorite shows, Game of Thrones.  Not only do I love this show, it gives me a great excuse to make dragon jewelry, and let's face it - dragons are cool.  Like so cool that I don't even wait for special events to make dragon jewelry, I make dragon pieces all the time.  Don't believe me?  Check this post about a beaded dragon bracelet and this post - A Micro Macrame Fairy Tale (featuring dragons).  Or check out my Etsy Shop, Knot Just Macrame.  Here, I'll give you a little taste of some pieces I've done featuring dragons:

Bead embroidery dragon bracelet by Sherri Stokey.

Dragon bracelet in khaki by Knot Just Macrame.

A trio of micro macrame dragon bracelets.

Micro macrame bracelet with pewter sea dragon button.

Micro macrame bracelet with copper dragon button.

Beaded macrame bracelet with dragon button closure.

Multi strand micro macrame necklace with dragon button closure.

Even if I wasn't a big dragon fan (and how could I not be - come on, people, they breathe fire!!!), I think I'd still be a big fan of Daenerys Targaryen, Khaleesi and Mother of Dragons.  She's an awesome character and we've watched her grow from a meek, timid girl to a strong, confident woman over the past seasons.  Along the way, she hatched three dragons even though dragons haven't been seen in generations.  And if that isn't cool enough?  She did it by climbing on top of her dead husband's funeral pyre with her petrified dragon eggs and woke up unharmed with the baby dragons. That, my friends, is why she is my inspiration for this Game of Thrones Jewelry Challenge piece:

Micro macrame bracelet with dragon heads closure.

I've had this dragon head clasp in my pile of cool-stuff-I-just-had-to-buy for some time now, just waiting for the perfect project and I decided this was it.  Some simple spiral knotting for the body of the bracelet and one cool clasp and it's all about the dragons!

  5. What fun pieces you've created! I'm a dragon fan too! All of your creations are just delightful! And the piece you created for the challenge is perfection! I could see any of the Targaryen household sport this bracelet. I like how the kumihimo has a very armor feel to it. Very cool and nicely done!

  7. Great piece Sherri, well, I do love ALL your dragons! What a fabulous clasp, reminiscent of the those dragons swallowing their tails (or is that snakes? Well serpents are a kind of dragon right?? LOL).

    1. They're both very reptilian to me, so yes, very similar!
