Jubilee Edition 2012 Dragon

The year 2012 is considered to be the Chinese year of the Water Dragon. Swarovski designer Elisabeth Adamer designed the base of the Satin Crystal dragon to resemble a bed of sea foam in clear crystal with bright red eyes.
Ancient Chinese Dragons are powerful symbols of good fortune, representing powers of new beginnings, high achievement, prosperity and success. There are five Chinese elements that are symbolized by the dragon – Fire, Water, Wood, Metal and Earth in an 8 year cycle. The Majestic Water Dragon is said to have the power to provide water for parched lands,symbolizing abundance, relief and balance.

    I agree although since I am a dragon I kind of like having lots of them. Not sure how many of them I will buy. I do like the SCS dragon and will get that one for sure.

  5. Robert says:

    Yes I like these Dragons. I think Swarovski have found the right conditions for the Dragons to Breed, as they seem to be Multiplying.
    I think we should give them names, it makes them more interesting
    What is a good name for an old Dragon?
    I have got two Old Dragons who I call Jane and Angie!
    Anyone else like to name a old Dragon

  6. Nan says:

    The Dragons are something different and interesting.
    But I think that Swarovski may have gone over the top a bit.
    To many dragons now.
