An art nouveau gold, enamel and pearl pendant necklace, circa 1900

The circular locket with applied blue and green enamel, overlaid with a gold repoussé dragon in flight, suspending pearl drops, the reverse engraved with the monogram ‘AW’, concealing a glazed compartment with hairwork, mounted in gold, to a trace-link chain [x]

This is Dew.

I used to draw her a lot when I had no direction but wanted to draw something pretty.  And I liked the idea of personifying dew.  It’s nonsense (like, why is there a dragon head there?) but at least it’s pretty.

This one dates back to early 2008.  It was a pencil doodle during one of my gradschool classes in which I was learning to be an art teacher because I never outgrew that.
