Dragonflies


These dragonflies were made from offcuts of friendly plastic and fun wire.  I shaped the wire into the wing shapes.  Pressed the wire into the heated plastic and once cooled cut around the wire.  I added the black and silver piece for the body and placed a small square piece over the middle to secure it all together.  I added a bead for decoration.

These are gob-smackingly fantastic! I think they would look gorgeous if you could attach a chain to the top wing and make them into pendants. The colours you have used are fabulous. I hope Liz sees these.

Liz is seeing these thanks to you Neet! They are fabulous. I love the designs and am most impressed by how neat you have been, it is not easy to make them look so good. The vey best thing about them is that they are totally yours. Think of all the other shapes you could use with this technique.Go for it Sam!
