You Can Make This

Abby Hook made Dragonfly sculpture with:

  • I have been experimenting recently with wire sculpture and have scaled up my dragonfly pendant. This little fellow has a 5 1/4" wingspan and measures 4 1/2" from head to tail. I have made him with blue glass beads and copper wire. Due to the size
  • I have added coiled frames around the beads on the body
  • to add detail and strength. I have also woven the wing wires

Q&A with Abby Hook

Grammy Schmidt asked:
I made my first dragonfly with silvertone wire and acrylic beads the other day while I was mentoring teenage girls at their school. It was really pretty and I was very pleased with my results. Now I'm inspired to do more. Love the wings they look so lacy and ready to take flight!
Abby Hook answered:
I would love to see the dragonfly you made Grammy, have you posted a picture? The wing detail is the aspect I am most proud of with this design. Thank you for your comment :)
