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!
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
