Delicate, shimmering dragonflies were a favorite theme in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century needlework. This enchanting dragonfly pin with fluttering wings is Arlene's attempt to capture the timeless appeal of these mysterious creatures in another medium - bead weaving with wire. Use bugle beads and seed beads of varying sizes and enjoy the dazzling results. This is a "Best of Beadwork" project.
