Fairies In Disguise

I absolutely love dragonflies!  Did you know that they are fairies in disguise? 

I just had to share my latest beaded bracelet.  It measures 6-1/2 inches long.  I used metal dragonflyand pink glass beads to create the bracelet.  I created the dangle charm using the the same pink beads and metal dragonfly wings.  I arranged them on a headpin and slightly curved the end to simulate a dragonfly in flight. 

I picked up the metal dragonfly wings from a fabulous little beading store located in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin called Beadology.  They have a large variety of beads and jewelry making components and many great samples displayed to inspire you.  Plus, the shop’s atmosphere is very welcoming.  You can purchase your items and then go back to the work room to start creating you masterpiece.  I’d highly recommend stopping by Beadology if you’re in the Lake Geneva area.  But if you can’t get there physically, here is the link to the stores website http://www.beadology-lakegeneva.com/

Dragonfly Beaded Necklace

 

Here is another little sneak peek of a necklace that I made for this Saturday’s craft show.  I’m getting so excited!!  It is made with glass and metal beads.  The dragonfly is metal and approximately 1 inch long.  The disc behind the dragonfly is a cut sea shell.  This necklace measures about 18 inches and is beautiful, if I do say so myself. 🙂  You’ll just have to see it in person.  Remember, the craft show is this Saturday (June 21st) in the Walmart parking lot in Brownsburg, IN.  Hope to see you there.
