Dragonfly With The Blues?

About this design:

I love browns and blues together. I used a little gilder's paste and vintaj patina on the dragonfly and closed this piece off with a nice little blue button.


Fossil Coral Rounds, Blue Glass Rounds, Czech glass navy leaves, vintaj wire, and buttons from my local craft store.

    This is so pretty!. I love how you colored the dragonfly. Antique brass is my favorite to work with, but I’ve noticed a lot of the pendants are a little too dark and could use a few highlights. Your color combo is very calming and sparkles at the same time. The addition of the buttons makes it even more fun and unique. Did you use copper in this necklace?
