Old Celtic designed looping dragon pendant in pewter with stainless steel chain
Based on an old Celtic design, this looping dragon pendant balances symmetry with art. Cast in pewter and finished with a silver wash, the pendant measures just over 2 inches in length and comes on a stainless steel cable chain.
The great venomous serpent (beithir-nimh in Scottish Gaelic) was the closest thing to a Western dragon to be found in Scottish mythology. While unable to breathe fire, the beithir possessed a venomous stinger and was typically found in the caves and crags along the Highlands. According to legend, any person stung by a beithir must race the serpent to the nearest body of water. If the victim won, their life was spared. Should the beithir win, the victim would die.
