Dragonfly Dreams


About this design:

I got this gorgeous Hill Tribe silver dragonfly and wanted to do something different with it so I made this set of three bracelets. Two of the bracelets are white shell beads and the bracelet with the dragonfly is faceted rock crystal that I got from LB. I love when these are on it looks like the dragonfly just landed on your wrist to rest.

Components:

6mm white shell and faceted rock crystal beads, 3mm sterling silver beads, 6mm sterling silver stardust beads and a silver Hill Tribe dragonfly bead. These are stretch bracelets.

    The phrase ‘understated brilliance’ came to mind when I saw your gorgeous bracelets. I love the white with sterling and that dragonfly is beautiful! I would never take these off :)

    Hey Gail,
    I take my pix on a white top with white poster board behind (to cover up my blue wall) right underneath a south facing window. I only use natural light. I use a tripod and a 14 megapixel Fugifilm Finepix digital camera. I also purchased o DVD on photographing jewelry that helped.

    You’ve highlighted the dragonfly perfectly by keeping the rest of the pieces pure and clear. Lovely!
