Altered Garden

About this design:

I had this Vintaj brass disk in my stash for quite a while. It was actually part of a necklace that didn't sell last year. I've altered it a bit, and inset a vintage cab that came out of my Mothers' bracelet. I sanded down the brass a bit to further bring out the patina & resealed it with clear coat for metals.


Vintage Cabashon, Vintaj DragonFly brass pendant.

    I initially passed right by this pendant when I started browsing. It caught my eye the third time through. It’s such a beautiful piece I’m thinking it may be the size of the photo doesn’t reflect how nice it is. You may want to attach additional photos b/c the close up does show good detail. Very nice!

    Wow, this is gorgeous! I’ve got a ton of these dragonfly discs, but couldn’t figure out how to use them with my polymer. This is giving me ideas now! Thanks so much for sharing it!
