What materials did you use? I was commissioned to make this brooch for a lady who had just bought herself a lovely winter coat, with a wide thick collar, she wanted a dragonfly brooch that would be big enough to cope with the collar but still have a delicate look. I adapted my dragonfly design to meet this criteria, adding faceted Rose Quartz to the wing tips and a faceted garnet to the centre of the wings. To give extra clearance between the brooch and pin, I have secured the tail beads in place using the same technique as my Kiss Kross ring. The dragonfly is 2" long, with a 2" wingspan and the clearance between the brooch and pin is 1/3".

This is so fantastic - I love it - there is such grace to the body of the dragonfly.

I love seeing your creativity with wire and jewels. This is a wonderful piece, nice balance of delicacy and sturdiness with a flare of pizazz. Just lovely! Looking forward to your next projects.
