Dragon Charm Earrings – hand-made with Tibetan silver charms

The Dragon Charm Earrings evoke the Chinese dragon, although dragons appear in myths from all around the world. It seems that dragon myths arose independently in Europe and China and possibly in North and South America and Australia.

Our innate fear of predators may have led to early humans imagining a composite animal that was wrongly drawn from examination of large bones and fossils of animals as diverse as the dinosaurs, whales and crocodiles.  In the modern world, there are species of large lizard that carry the name “dragon”, such as the Komodo dragon.

If you think of dragons as supersize reptiles with a nasty bite, the Komodo dragon is the real deal. Up to 3m long and weighing as much as 70kg, they are the world’s biggest lizards.

They can’t breathe fire, but they kill pigs, deer and water buffalo with their mouths. In the past it was assumed that bacteria in their saliva caused blood poisoning. But in 2009 scientists discovered that Komodo dragons have venomous saliva that floods the wounds inflicted by their razor-sharp teeth.

Chinese Dragons

The Chinese dragon is a symbol of wisdom, power, and luck in Chinese culture. Unlike western dragons, oriental dragons are usually seen as benevolent and kind. Dragons have long been a symbol in Chinese folklore and art. Temples and shrines have been built to honour them.

Through the symbol of the dragon, many Chinese see divine attributes which they aspire to themselves. In fact, the Chinese are sometimes referred to as “descendants of the dragon.” The dragon is held in reverence and respect in Chinese culture. It is unseemly to defile a depiction of a dragon. Dragons are referenced by several Chinese proverbs.

Chinese dragons control the rain, rivers, lakes, and sea. They can ward off wandering evil spirits, protect the innocent, and bestow safety unto all. Their names are lung or long in the Chinese language.

They fly in the sky among clouds. Most pictures of Chinese dragons show them playing with a flaming pearl. Legend has it that the pearl gives them their power and allows them to ascend into heaven.
