Dragonfly Debut

DRAGONFLY DEBUT: Overdramatic? Okay, maybe ... but I'm so excited about how these pieces came out!! I'm not typically a "theme" person designing around something like this, but these dragonflies caught my eye. I gave you a sneak preview of the beads previously, and now they finally have come together and I'm sharing the necklace and bracelet here on my blog first! They will soon to be available in my Etsy Shop (www.MyHappyThings.etsy.com). The colors are so calm and cool, and go wonderfully with the mixed metals of gunmetal, silver and oxidized silver. The beads are muted gray-blues and darker blues, with sage and blue-green shades of green in stone rondelles. Clasping on the side with a silver dragonfly, a wood-carved dragonfly mirrors it on the other side. The lampworked focal bead is handmade, and is something you have to see to really appreciate. The beautiful taupe and brown hues of the glass are just perfect against the gray-blue below, and the speckles are wonderfully interesting hues of various metals - truly gorgeous!
