Dragonfly Brooch

beaded jewelry by Christen Brown
printer friendly image


A wired silk ribbon vine becomes the perfect perch for a beaded dragonfly. The body of the dragonfly is a dentalium shell which is embellished with a beaded circular peyote upper torso and brick stitched wings.

The silk vine is enhanced with silk flowers and beaded brick stitch leaves. The kit includes the supplies to combine the armature with the button.


Both peyote stitch and brick stitch knowledge will be helpful along with some hand sewing skills.
