    Hey, neat, I just used these same little dragonflies in my Dragofly Season posting. I didn’t double them up cause I just wanted spacers, but yours is adorable. Love it. Tell your sister she can shop for me anytime.

    This is a lovely design. Lucky your sister had her eye out at the craft fair. You didn’t mention bone, but I think it has bone, and that is very nice…also really like the dragonflies.

    Hi Linda – those off white stones you see are Fosial Coral Rondels I got from Lima Beads. I wanted to pull some of the lighter color from the pendant up into the necklace so it wouldn’t be to dark. Gald you like it.

    Hey pretty cool KittyMom we used the same accent dragonflies. And look how our imaginations used them in such different designs – yet they look great in both.

    My sister called me when she saw them – I told her to pick out a couple and surprise me. I still have 2 others she got that I haven’t made anything with.
