Dragonfly Lotus

Standard

IMG_4089I’ve been seeing a lot of dragonflies this summer.  Some flitting around the back patio, others (alas) in the garage.  I suppose it’s due to the wet Spring we had.

Seeing them inspired this brooch.  The cameo is very dimensional, standing out from the blue background at least 1/4 inch.

Seed beads of various sizes make up the peyote stitched bezel.  No lotus under glass this time.

The edge-work is pretty simple, having a running band of beads with crystal picots every so often.  It needed something more, so I added fringe, but not too much.  Just right, as Goldilocks would say.
