Announcement   *Important Notice: My sweetie and I are taking a long-overdue vacation, one we've waited our whole lives to take. We're not getting any younger, so it's time we tick off an item on our bucket list. Because of this, all orders placed while I'm gone will have DELAYED SHIPPING. You can figure the shipping time of any item by adding the days stated in the listing to my return date of April 10, 2018. For instance, if the item normally ships in 7 business days, your order will ship within 7 business days after April 10, regardless of the date you place your order. I hope you love my creations enough to place an order, even though there's a wee delay. Thank you so much for your support and understanding!

We make all our Garden Art, Chalkboard Organizers and Jewelry ourselves, no outsourcing, no lasers, no computerized CNC - just truly handmade, Eco friendly designs, from mostly recycled materials! Support Small Business, Handmade and Recycling. Shop with GeminiDragonfly. Thank you!

Someone is going to be finding these sweet little Diversity Birds under the tree on Christmas morning!
This Neck Warmer sold before I could even get it listed. grinning We have more to choose from, though, luckily. They make awesome gifts! #Neckwarmer #winterfashion #crossoverscarf

About

Always Changing and Never Ending!

We have been working together to create Recycled Art for many years. It all started when Tamara drug a car hood in from the scrap pile years ago. Her late husband did hobby restoration of classic cars, so she was used to being around a plasma cutter, welder and auto body tools. She knew what she had to do. Use those tools to make art! Pretty soon the whole family was working together creating what became the family business. Lots of things have grown and changed through the years, but Tamara is still dragging pieces of tired metal in from the scrap yard then molesting and molding it in to Art. The shop is always a mess. Her hands are always scraped and burned and the music is always loud, but she still loves it!

During the quieter moments, Tamara creates jewelry from mostly recycled materials, as well. You'll see many different incarnations of her creative juices at GeminiDragonfly. Luke loves to forge in his spare time. Tamara's daughter, McKenzie, creates some of the jewelry, as well, and offers support in running the Etsy part of the family business. Tamara remarried and her husband, Rick, helps with shipping and art shows.

The inspiration and creative energy is always changing, so check in often. You never know what they'll decide to bring to life next!

    Owner, Artist/Designer, Shop Manager

    I guess I'm where this all started. I consider being an Artist my vocation which is described in the dictionary as an inclination, as if in response to a summons to undertake a certain kind of work. That's it in a nutshell for me.

  • Luke

    Sculptor, Artist/Designer

    I grew up with art in my life every day and had a welder in my hands before I was nine. I don't get to work with mom much nowadays, since I live too far away, but once in a while, I get to help her with a big art installation, just like old times.

  • McKenzie Paige

    Designer

    I grew up with soap stone in my hand, drawing my whimsical designs on steel for my mom to cut out (see some of the Fairies.) I'm pursuing my own creative life now, but still work the art shows from time to time and design Jewelry.

  • Rick R.

    Shipping And General Support

    I'm Tamara's husband and worked in Education my entire career. Now, I support Tamara's artistic endeavors by handling shipping, loading in and out of art shows and keeping us fed when she's working!
