4:00 A.M. Dragonflies

About this design:

Up at 4:00 a.m. And what am I doing?? Making a necklace / earring set! I saw the dragonflies and decided to make a pair of earrings...after those were done well you know you just can't stop at that! So I decided to make the matching necklace.
My bead color choice was midnight blue czech beads. After all it was dark outside! My other bead choices were a little harder, I loved the light blue czech beads but thought that the color combo just might not be there. But once put together it was just right. The tiny tan czech beads were then added. I am pleased with the outcome!


Czech beads in midnight blue, light blue & tan. Vintaj dragonflies and copper ear wires and chain.
