~ Dragonfly ~
I used 16 gauge bare copper wire to form the dragonfly. I wrapped 16 gauge around it at different spots. I placed a swarovski crystal in the center of it. I'm very proud of this piece. I then antiqued it with Liver of Sulfur for that vintage look and finally waxed it with Renaissance wax to keep it looking good. It hangs from a black cord. An awesome piece !

It has been used successfully to amplify and to transmit thought. It is said to be a "bestower of good" bringing benefit to its user.
