Ten Lizards Leaping

by: Dwyn Tomlinson

Continuing along with the theme of the 12 days of Christmas, we have 10 Lizards leaping - except that finding a Lizard seemed to be something of a challenge. So I went with Dragon's Swinging.

What do you mean, it's 10 Lords a'leaping?

That's ridiculous - who ever heard of Lords Leaping? I mean, really! Princes Prancing and Squires Squatting maybe - but Lords Leaping? I doubt it.

Anyway - Swinging Dragons it is.

I went for the bi-metal look with silver chain and gold dragons - but feel free to put your own spin on it.  I used VERY Fine wire to make the wrap with the crystal - it's a bit fiddly, but keeps the weight down.

Wire onto the dragon charm, make a wrapped loop, add the crystal, make another loop, add the chain, and then finish the wrapped loop.

The chain attaches to the earwire by opening the loop on the earwire and adding the chain.
