Artbeads has truly become one of my favorite places. They have a wonderful selection and the best shipping rate out there! lol. How could anyone resist :). I got this gorgeous teardrop pendant from them recently and just fell in love with the gorgeous colours and texture. The dark teals and light teal mix has to be a favorite.

The Malachite Jasper Pendant is paired up with a large mix of different types of beads. Semi-precious, glass, pearls, brass, crystal, and my personal favorite... Vintaj Brass. I carefully wrapped the beautiful Pendant in a piece of filigree and put it directly on the wire of the necklace and added the dragonfly directly in front. I then added some seed beads that reminded me of the shimmer of a dragonfly's wings and joined them together through a filigree bead cap and a piece of dark green Agate. I then re threaded the strands separately with seed beads and brass beads, crystals, more brass, pearls, and so on and so on.
I hope you come back soon for the next "teaser" post for my Use the Muse II piece.

This is really pretty. Love the dragonfly! Was it easy to bend the filigree? I'm always afraid I'm going to break it.

Truly lovely, Marie. I like how the dragonfly flits off the focal. Very dragonfly behaviour.
