Daylily Dragonfly

About this design:

Inspired by a dragonfly hovering above my daylillies, I put patina on a brass dragonfly and used these beautiful bright beads I got from Lima to create this ayssemmetrical necklace, bracelet and earrings.


Czech glass banana picasso fire polished rondelles, orange picasso flower window squares, peruvian opal flower window squares, and peruvian opal coins, amazon rain fire polished rondelles, copper chain,

    Loving the shades of teal and orange Czech glass with the dragonfly design. The asymmetry works so well here.
