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.
I added a ceramic "open" knob at the tail...
and aged keys for the eyes.
I also made a couple with fun wire that has little
rusted stars on it.
This wire is not the easiest thing to work with but the end result is really cute!
I used pieces of the wire for the antenna too.
This tail piece is an aged handle from a bathroom sink knob.
Here's the other starry one I made...
It has a cute ceramic knob at the tail...
and miscellaneous metal pieces for the eyes and on the body.
For this one I combined a garden sign with the dragonfly...
He has a lamp harp for antenna...
And hand painted garden sign wings...
With a flower and leaves on the other side.
This one was a custom order for the owner of a cabin rental called
This is the logo I worked from...
I figured aged keys at the tail was fitting for a cabin rental...
Along with a vintage escutcheon on the body.
All the lettering is hand painted in a distressed finish.
And lastly, another wire wing with glass beads woven throughout.

I added little beads at the end of the antenna...
And a vintage glass knob at the tail.
Lots of glass beads, giving a nice lacy effect.
