Dragonfly necklace and work in progress

Just finished the necklace that started with the sari silk focal with the dragonfly motiv. The brass is stamped with the word Libelle - which, of course, is the German word for dragonfly.

I used some of the sari silk for the necklace itself, too.

Another work in progress, which will incorporate sari silk and linen.

Oh la la, que c'est joli ! Your pendant fits in a so lovely way with the incredible turquoise of the sari silk ribbon. I really can see you in this one and the new one you begin to work on, exactly your colours dear Ren !

Wundervolle Kette. Sari ribbon hat es mir auch angetan. Ich sitze gerade an einem Armreif, in dem ich es auch verwende. LG Stefanie

GASP!! MUST know what those rich blue-green stones/beads are. Really perfect with the silk ribbons and the pendant, extra luscious with copper. Exceptional.
