Demure Dragonfly

She's a bit demure, but she carries a tail full of jewels and has a sweet little smiling face, too.

This necklace made from a vintage mold has a graceful pose with a 2 1/4 inch wing span. From her gracefully curved tail she trails, from left to right: a moonstone tooth, held aloft by a copper headpin with a rosy head. Next to that is a gorgeous and hard to find purple moonstone with lovely blue fire (it's very difficult to photograph the fire, but you can see it in the photo to the right), a white freshwater pearl, copper Czech glass seed beads, and a beautiful simplicity cut 6mm golden shadow swarovski (it has beautiful little flicks and striations of gold inside) crystal holding up another moonstone tooth that's finished off with another rosey copper headpin. The longest drop (1 5/8") is made from a helix-cut 8mm purple velvet swarovski, a large iridescent purple and two small copper, Czech beads, supporting a little brass orchid. Lastly is simply a iridescent mauve freshwater potato pearl and a little copper Czech bead. All of these are wrapped with copper wire.

Up the necklace, on the opposite side of her treasures, is another puple moonstone, another pearl, and a danglie supporting a 4mm tanzanite swarovski crystal and a 7mm labradorite briolette. You can see its blue fire in the photo. It's a beautiful little stone. Some truly stunning lovelies are in this necklace: moonstone (and purple, no less!), labradorite, pearls and crystals. Can't go wrong with those.

While I can reproduce this necklace, in some ways it's a one-of-a-kind in that these stones vary and no two are exactly alike. I would venture a guess that you'll not see anyone else selling one just like it -- unless they copy Adorn Me's design, of course ;).

The last photo is horrid, but it gives you an idea of how the necklace is designed and how it lays.

The necklace has 23" of antiqued brass chain for a total length of 26 1/2". This can be sized up or down, according to your needs, and it closes with a lobster claw clasp. It's ready for a home at $37.00
