Dragonflies Necklace, Alaskan Gold Nuggets, Dragonfly Jewelry
Dragonfly Pendant Necklace,
Silver Jewelry, Alaskan Gold Nuggets, Gold-fill Beads, 1 1/4" x 5/8", 16"-19" Adjustable, 1/4" Titanium Mesh (Gold colored)
These winged beauties delight me in many ways, through their acrobatic flight, dazzling colors and voracious mosquito-eating. An Alaskan gold nugget accent between each wing weighs them down just a little and keeps them from flying away!
I designed my first dragonfly pendant necklace in 1972. I had just moved to Alaska and was living in a cabin not too far from where I now reside. As I worked on my original dragonfly pendant and earrings, I realized that I didn't know if dragonflies had antennas. But at that very moment, my cat presented me with what I thought was a dead dragonfly. He placed it very carefully on my workbench. It lay absolutely still so I reached over and grabbed it by its tail. Much to my amazement, it wasn't dead and darned if that insect didn't wrap itself around my finger and thumb, buzzing loudly. I learned at that moment that dragonflies do not have antennas, they vibrate and are sticky, very sticky.
