Dragonfly wire wrapped pendant...




...hello ladies - geeez I have been posting so much lately, so sorry if I am bothering anyone :)

Well, I seem to be setting myself challenges that seem to take longer and longer to achieve - the tree of life pendants were taking me approx. 2 hours to make - this dragonfly pendant has taken me three times as long - all day I have been toiling, delicately winding - but voila! finally done - my next pendant will be a wire wrapped owl (I think that one should be easier) - hope you like my dragonfly pendant.

Cheers all and I hope you are all well and good - Val xoxo

    Hi Nicola, yes, I more or less taught myself how to make these - I have ordered a few instructional dvds but they wont be here for another week - so I am experimenting :D

  18. Hi Jade, the paints are all there, boxed up and neat, waiting for my return - Maya has got a bag of some jewellery which I had made but wasn't very happy with, so she is wearing a different necklace every day :D

    Hi Kelly, so good to have connected on Blogger - we are both into painting and jewellery making, we can relate, thats for sure - I look forward to seeing your lovely work in the future too, take care Val :D
