Dragonfly with Beaded Wire Wings

If you keep up with me on Facebook, you've already 
seen my latest dragonfly with beaded wire wings.

I used to make beaded ones like this long before I first blogged about them.
I would also make them using wire and window screen for the wings 
and embellish with beads.

I don't have an instructional but I made the wings with thick wire,
then filled the insides of the wings with thinner wire and glass beads.

There's no real method to the bead placement,
I just kind of added them as I went along...

Copper wire antenna and metal pieces for the eyes...

He has a pretty turquoise blue body...

and lots of beautiful, colorful beads.

I also added a metal piece at the tail...I believe it is a
washing machine hose clamp.

This style is quite a bit more time consuming to make but 
he turned out great.

Others must have thought so too because he sold about
20 minutes after I listed him in my Online Store.
Guess I better get busy!

Join me on Facebook and Pinterest
or visit my Etsy Online Store.  I'm always adding
new designs and have lots of other fun pieces too.

Thanks for checking out my glass beaded dragonfly
