This is a hand carved 3D Dragon Bead in Copper by Derrick Obatake of Steel Flame
One of my Favorite pieces from Derrick ~ this Copper has an ancient patina and has amazing detail!
The Designer – Derrick Obatake born and raised in East Los Angeles has been designing and making jewelry for over 35 years. At an early age he was taught to be a machinist by his father. He is a Graduate Gemologist from GIA and has had formal training in traditional jewelry arts: Diamond setting, model making, casting, finishing and fabrication. He has extended experience in Die striking, and 3D CAD design.
“I like to blend old school craftsmanship with new age technology to create an out of the box style that is hopefully refreshing and empowering.” Derrick Obatake
Looking into the Maw of the Beast
The opening is large enough to accomdate 2 Strands of 550 Paracord (with the inner strands still inside) or a substantial piece of Leather.
Just a great piece with distinct style and craftsmanship
This Bead measures more than 1 1/4″ around and weighs almost .75 ounces
My Favorite Bead!
