Welcome to my blog! When I started this blog it was all about wire crochet jewelry. I fell in love with the first piece I saw and I had to learn how. I was "hooked"!

Dragonflies for Mom

Wednesday was my Mom's birthday.  We celebrated with Dairy Queen ice cream cake, gifts, and lots of giggles!  Hope your day was happy, Mom!  We love you!!!

 I made this necklace & earrings especially for her because she likes Dragonflies. A "fried marble" is attached to the tail.  My granddaughter{Delaney} & I like to do crafty things together.  One day we fried marbles.  They turned out quite pretty & sparkly!  Delaney gave one of the marbles to Mom and she has saved it so I knew it would have special meaning on the necklace. 

I used Czech Fire Polished beads in "Moonlight Mist".  These are so pretty, aqua with bronze-y accents, which went perfectly with the Vintaj bronze wire.  I used a Vintaj Scrolled Filigree Ring & Art Deco Dragonfly, and used a Vintaj bead cap to attach the marble.  The earrings are Dragonfly Connectors with a "Moonlight Mist" dangle.

Jana, your mom's birthday gift is just beautiful! I'm sure she had a wonderful day! She's lucky to have a daughter that loves her so much she creates special designs just for her!

Have a fantastic weekend!
