Black and Silver Dragon by merimask Black and Silver Dragon by merimask
Another leather dragon mask...

I like this particular design, because with each new color variation it's like a whole new mask. The black and silver version is especially striking because it's so monochromatic...the silver really jumps against the black.

I used a hematite stone as a focal inlay.

As always, you may find masks like this (and many more) at my online Etsy shop: [link]

I wish I had 2000 dollars. There are so many masks in your Etsy that I really, really want xD

You did beautiful on your masks! Here's hoping they are still around when I get loads of money :)

This is a nice one! Love the colouring, and the shape is great. It looks so graceful, gand the hematite gives it a really mistical touch. I love it!

O'rly? My birthday is in a few months, actually. July 22nd; turning 17 this year. Honestly, I do not want much for my birthday.. because my mother doesn't get what I want. First and foremost, a new computer! This thing won't let me play anything! Not even Sims 2...

Anywho, when are you coming up with a new mask design? I'm anxious.

Through long, hard deliberation, this black one has come out on top as far as a favorite goes :3

Though the curved horns of the blue one are really charming (or it may just be the picture angle?) the strikingness for this one is fantastic. You on FIRE this year, lady!
