Now meet the Queen of the Dragons!!

I mean this in the nicest way!!!

I have bought many miniature birds and animals from the ever-so talented and lovely Nicky Cooper, and always thought of her as the queen of birds and wildlife, although I soon discovered she makes the most beautiful dolls also.

Well a few weeks ago Nicky made something with a difference and I think I can safely say that ever since that, her love of these little fellows and our love of them too, has grown and grown.

Nicky made a dragon head plaque and called him 'Ice' he was just incredible and I knew Emily would love him for her Merlin room. So I was lucky enough to buy him.

THEN a few days later Emily saw that Nicky had made another dragon and she loved it even more as its style was more suited to her project and so I bought her 'Midnight' and she just adores him! I was quite chuffed as it meant I could keep Ice for myself and we had one each!

When he arrived, in the parcel was a gift from Nicky of something she had been experimenting with, a baby Ice hatching out of his egg. He is precious and will go in the Potter house in Dumbeldore's office for him to look after.

Since those first couple of dragons , it has just gone mad for Nicky, she has created loads more dragons on plaques, dragon babies, naughty twins, dragon fountains, the list goes on and on. I think she must be working from dawn to dusk and the quality is just superb!!

Please check out Nickys wonderful work on her ebay page.
You will soon see from the great feedback how many people are loving these new creations!

And its not just dragons, but Nicky is also making other fantasy work, and next week I hope to get a very special piece that leapt out at me for Dumbeldore's office that I was very very lucky to win! He is this amazing Firebird which will proudly mount on the study wall! Cant wait to get him!

These are new, original and creative miniatures that are taking the miniature scene by storm, hence why I now call Nicky the 'Queen of the Dragons!!'

Si, Nicky es un gran artista. Me gustan tus compras. Son unos dragones preciosos. El recien nacido saliendo del huevo hay que cuidarlo :)

Karin F. said...

you outbid me on 2 of them! LOL ...but only because you have the unfair advantage of using GBP as your currency. Our dollar is only worth .59 cents to the GBP.
Ah well next time!!!
hugs Karin

Glad you all like them but SO sorry to Poor Karin, sorry hun, but Im sure Nicky will be making lots more and you will be lucky! I feel bad , I was worried when I bid on the firebird that someone I knew may be bidding! xxxx
