    I think the beads are going to look really cool & free-spirited. It may be tough to mix the lightweight brass dragonflies into the design with the heavy beads and the heavy Greek dragonflies, but where there’s a free spirit, there may be a way. Once the pieces are in hand to play with you’ll work it out anyway. The theme & colors are awesome, and I like the component you chose. Hope it turns out fabulous & captures her spirit!

    I love dragonflies! I know when I make picks I often put in extras and somethings that l’m not sure of. Because when they arrive they don’t always look quite like they look on the computer screen. Then I play with them and get stuff out of my stash and TaDa. Something wonderful will happen.

    Ditto on the comments above! I love all the dragonflies in this pick, the dragonfly reed pendant is a favorite! The stones and Grace lampwork rondelle are quite striking with the patina copper sheet!

    Thank you all very much! I plan to start with a braided, knotted trio of pink leather strings around back of neck, attached to chain on both sides, then alternating strung pink opals/African turquoise heishi, and various bronze beads. Then GL rondelle with reed pendant hanging (using ropework jump rings). I will curl the edges of patina sheet and pierce holes to hang the dragonflies in front of patina sheet which will hang below the reed pendant. Will see how it works out…
