Dragonfly Brooch with Garnet, Citrine and Pearls

This lovely brooch was inspired by a local lady who collects dragonfly jewelry. She asked me if I had any dragonfly pieces...and now I do!

The frame (outline) of the dragonfly was formed with wire. I added his color with the gemstones and pearls.

His head is actually a deep amethyst crystal rondelle, which blends in exquisitely with the deep red/purple of the garnet stones. His eyes are vintage black onyx tiny crystals.

The dragonfly brooch is available here. :) It's the first figural brooch I've made in this technique.
