Electric Dragonfly

About this design:

This didn't turn out anything like I planned, and I'm not sure yet about it. I had patina'd the blank a while ago, and then I let it sit. I was sure I had 2 dragonfly connectors, but I could only find 1, so this is how the design evolved.


Patina'd brass blank, brass filigree, brass bead cap and rounds, Czech glass, Pave round and spacer, brass lobster clasp, leather cord.

    Actually think it looks fantastic with just the one connector!! Love the color as and the little smidgen of purple for an accent.

    Great colors and design Susie! That one dragonfly connector adds interest to the piece IMO. Just fabulous!

    Susie the colors are great. Once again your patina is outstanding. I think 1 dragonfly works…but I kinda want it either up further or down further.

    Durn my comment submitted before I wanted to!! About the dragonfly…for some reason I keep thinking it would look more balanced up further or down further. But I could be wrong…
