Update as of Spring 2016, I'm no longer making the dragonflies.
I sincerely appreciate all the past orders, thank you!
Please visit my new online shop featuring my coastal and 
nature themed mosaics. 
For those of you that like to make your own dragonflies
I thought I would share my latest ideas with you like this
Zebra Dragonfly with Ceiling Fan blade wings.
I'm now hung up on animal print since I made the Zebra Butterfly!
Well...I always love animal print.

Here's one with wood and pieces of vintage tin tile on the wings.
I had pieces of tile leftover from the Dragonfly with Tin Tile Wings 
and used them in this one.

I ended up drilling small holes in the tile and attaching them to the wings with wire

I normally screw the wings directly into the body but these
spindles were so slim right where I wanted to attach them, I ended
up screwing them to a piece of wood and then into the body

A friend of my Mother's had given me all of these spindles 
that I used in these dragonflies...
It was like Christmas!!

I've moved to to focus on my mosaic art. I'm no longer creating dragonflies or mermaids.
