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.
