It's a bold statement brooch and best worn on heavier clothing.
95 mm x 65 mm (3-3/4" x 2- 5/8")
This piece was the one of the first Earthly Creatures design I made.
At first I was only working only in sterling silver, gold and bronze.
When I started to cast in pewter, it was also the first design to be made.
This dragonfly is life size and life like (kind of). I studied the form of the dragonfly and worked on capturing the aerodynamics of the wings and the form of the body. Truly a beautiful creature created by mother nature, only to be recreated in wax , then metal.
The back is detailed as the front.
This piece is copper plated with a beautiful iridescence patina clear coated to prevent oxidation.
Made in copper plated cast lead free silver pewter with solder strong nickel pin clasp.
