table leg dragonfly with stained glass mosaic wings
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. 

I have a few new table leg dragonflies and one butterfly to share
with you. I haven't kept many in stock in my Etsy shop 
lately since I've been busy with other projects, but I still
make them to order.

This mosaic winged dragonfly was one of those custom orders.

Since I was making her order, I made another
mosaic dragonfly for my Etsy shop as well.

I added a colorful ceramic knob at the tail...

I gave her pink glass bead eyes and repurposed beaded shower
curtain hooks for the antenna.

They both had the most beautiful iridescent glass that catches
the light on the wings.

I photographed them outside but these are strictly indoor use
since the base for the wings is plywood. Mosaic on top
of plywood will not hold up in wet weather.

I also had an order for a fleur de lis design in yellow.

The fleur de lis dragonfly in Pink is one of my most popular designs
and my customer liked the design but needed it in yellow.

repurposing jingle bells into art
For the eyes, I repurposed metal jingle bells by opening
them up with needle nose pliers and bending the edges.
They look like little flowers!
