Bejeweled Dragonfly Brooch

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women

What you will need

  • 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".
