While we were in Rapid City, SD, mom picked up some interesting beads. She really likes dragonflies and had to get these when she saw them. Did you know that dragonflies represent the mystic or dream world?
After thinking about what to do with these beads, this idea was born.
This is a double wrap bracelet, with the dragonfly beadwork design on either side of the big bead. The blue of these beads is awesome because they are antique Venetian beads. I’m thinking mom needs to make me a beaded necklace with these beads. If you would like a bracelet like this, email me and I will get mom to make you one. The cost on one like this is $50. A single wrap bracelet would be $25.
She also made this necklace and earring set, the carved dragonfly on the necklace is bone. The blue beads are antique.
Mom is also working on a beaded bag for a friend. This is a traditional Sioux beadwork pattern on brain tan leather. This is a trade for a quilt. Mom’s friend is an EXCELLENT quilt maker so this works out for both of them. The beadwork is about half way done, then the bag will go together.
Have you done any Artsy Fartsy projects this week?
