Table Leg Dragonflies with Numbers, Letters, Stars, Beads, Words and More!

beaded dragonfly wings with house numbers
Update April 2016
I'm no longer creating the dragonflies and I'm completely sold out.
Thank you for all your past support and purchases!
Please visit my new online shop featuring my mosaic art.

I have lots of new dragonflies to show you and decided to 
group them all in this post.
For this one I used house numbers and letters woven into 
wire wings with glass beads

I used the same method I shared in this post to create the wire wings and add the beads.
