The Dragonfly, 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! Teresa was inspired to try to capture the elegant beauty of this fast moving creature, in Sterling enhanced with a glistening cabochon.
Here, shown in photos, set with a dark Teal Green Tourmaline cabochon, you may choose your gemstone selection from the drop down menu. Tourmaline is an October Birthstone.
The wingspan of this creature is 1 3/4" wide and the body is 1 3/8" long. It is crafted on an 18" Sterling Twisted Rope Chain, and finished with our Hook and Eye clasp; Lobster Claw Clasp options are available, as are Cable Chain options, please send us a message with your requests.
This unique Necklace is handcrafted using traditional Metalsmithing techniques. I have incised and chased my patterns into the Sterling sheet metal, which I have cut out with my jeweler's saw, and then formed. I relish finding design solutions for my ideas, working in metal; I enjoy the resist of the medium. This piece is then given a natural patina, our signature graphite grey in its recesses adding depth and dimension, enhancing the designs.
All of our work is thoughtfully crafted in our studio, located in the lower Hudson Valley region of New York, where nature is full and abundant and inspiring.
Each piece is signed and dated and stamped Sterling and will arrive in a velvet pouch and our T and Brie box, with a handcrafted card illustrating the design's inspiration. Ready for unique gift giving or safe keeping.
This creature has fascinated us for years, and we have paid homage to it in various metallic forms. Designed for the nature lover with a sophisticated design sense, this unique piece will delight and please for many years to come; a modern day heirloom.
