Dragonflies, like the mythic, cosmic Dragons of the Far East, are imbued with the spirit of regeneration and immortality. Their amazing life-cycle includes a transformation from an ungainly aquatic nymph to an iridescent aerial acrobat! They are thought to symbolize renewal and positivity.
Our Petite Dragonflies are crafted in solid 14k Gold, and set with shimmering Welo Opals, alight with iridescent color, and satin gold. Also available to be set with:
Blue Kyanite Cabochons
Blue flash Moonstone Cabochons
Green Tourmaline Cabochon
Size: Crafted of solid 14k Gold these Dragonflies will dangle from long elegant 14k Gold Earwires. A more diminutive version of our first Dragonfly earrings; they are 3/4 " or 18 mm in length, with ear wire they will dangle 1", or 25 mm long. The wingspan is 3/4" or 20 mm in width. Using metalsmithing techniques, we have delicately patterned the wings with steel stamping tools.
"It is a very pleasurable experience to try to recreate these fleeting, mysterious creatures in glistening metal. Each piece to me feels like a homage to the beauty and mystery of Nature. I am honored to use my skills in this way." --- Teresa de la Guardia, designer, maker, T and Brie
