Dragonfly Hair Barrette or Shawl pin

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women

What you will need

  • I have scaled up my popular Dragonfly design to form this large hair barrette of scarf/shawl pin. The wings are formed using a technique which captures the delicate veins and tapering edges of its wings. I have then secured oval Blur Lace Agate beads to the tip of each wing and one in the centre of the wings. I have formed the body with a line of circular Blue Lace Agate beads
  • which are secured in place using my Kiss Kross wrapping technique. There is a large wrapped loop at the tip of the tail and the head
  • which is where the pin passes through. The pin is formed with a double length of wire
  • which I have hammered
  • to add strength. The pin is finished with two open spirals
  • representing the dragonflies antenna. I have shaped the dragonflies body into a curve
  • so that it fits nicely around the head. The dragonfly is 3 1/2" long (loop to loop) with a 3 1/2" wingspan. The body has a 3/4" curve at the highest point. The pin is 5" long.
