Copper Dragonfly Stick Barrette

I love dragonflies and thought I’d try my hand making one out of copper wire.

It took me a couple of tries before I was happy with the result.

I usually hammer texture my pieces but decided the smooth look was a better choice, maybe I’ll try texturing the next one just to see how it turns out.

It might make it reflect light better and give it more of an organic feel.

I think the bead color invokes water as well as giving it some depth.

I can see it hovering above a cool pond among the reeds on a warm summer day.

  1. A fun idea, Veronica, and I love the way you attached the wings and body to the “stick”. The dragonfly feels graceful and like it’s in mid-flight. The turquoise bead adds just the right amount of color.

    Veronica, this is beautiful! It makes me want to have long hair just so I can put that in my hair.

  3. Could be a shawl pin too (for loose weave)!

    I loved this dragonfly and went to your Etsy to see more of your work – you are GOOD! Love your work.

  5. So beautiful & very balanced. I hope you sell the heck out of those!
