Dancing Dragonfly

Finally - a finished project to post! I started this back before I got sick, but then it just sat forlorn and neglected on my work surface until I could feel well enough to finish it. Because feeling sick and creativity? Kinda not a match.

Fortunately, I started to feel a bit better over the weekend (at last!) and got a few things done.


Nothing really outrageously special or intricate about this design. I just saw the dragonfly pendant and loved it. I added some Swarovski crystals in what I think of as "dragonfly" colors - purples, greens and blues.


A close-up on the pendant.


I found these cute little toggle clasps at a local bead store called The Beading Place. I really liked that they have a touch of color on the flower and leaves which seems to perfectly pick up the crystal colors in the dangles.

Okay, that's it for now. Hope everyone had a nice weekend!
