Challenge Creations #4: Dragonfly

As I was driving home the other day, I drove through a hatch of dragonflies — dozens and dozens of them flitting here and there. It was wonderful.

“As spirit animal, the dragonfly is connected to the symbolism of change and light. When the dragonfly shows up in your life, it may remind you to bring a bit more lightness and joy into your life. " source

Change and light: that’s what I thought of, actually, during my hatch experience — they had recently transformed from a nymph form (which I have had the privilege of watching, and it is amazing!!) and I thought of the beautiful colours of the wings, glistening in the sunlight – also amazing!

So: the challenge.
Create a dragonfly-inspired piece of jewelry.

Ooo, lucky you! Every time I feed the birds and water my garden, I see a nice blue dragonfly. It’s flown by my head numerous times too! I happen to have a bunch of blue dragonfly pendants, silver charms, and small gold ones too. I’ve been meaning to create something dragonfly, and now I have a reason to dig in!

Not sure if any of you others have done this, but I was in search of dragonfly pieces on this site, to see what others had done ‘before’ this dragonfly challenge was issued. Go to ‘creations’ at top left, then once on that page, go to the search bar top right, and type in dragonflies or dragonfly.
OH MY GOODNESS! There are some gorgeous dragonfly pieces that were made previously! I missed a lot of them when they were originally posted, for some reason, but they are a delight to see. Go take a look!
