Learn to create this dragonfly using a technique which captures the delicate veins and tapering edges of its wings. This tutorial also includes several variations which include a brooch and earrings as well as different ways to hang the pendant, so you can have a whole set of dragonflies!

Don’t be put off by the length of this tutorial, as it contains a lot of information as well as all the variations.

The dragonflies measure 1 3/4” from head to tail and 2” across the wings.

The green dragonfly in the second image is the main tutorial, all others are in the variation section at the end.
