Made with a heavy gauge copper wire which I have hammered, adding a textured effect. This can be worn as a hair barrette or scarf pin.
The dragonflies wings have been wrapped to add detail and also to make this piece very strong. The body of the dragonfly is made up of a series of loops, each flowing into the next one. The pin has two spirals at the top, symbolizing the dragonflies antenna, I have woven the top section of the pin, adding contrast to the smooth, hammered wire.
It measures 2 3/4" from head to tail and 4 1/8" across the wing span and has a deep curve which is 3/4". The pin is 4 2/3" long.
I have oxidised this barrette, highlighting the detail.
This item comes in a gift box.
