Dragonflies


I think I might be dreaming of spring and summer...

I thought this up over the weekend - I was fiddling with some ribbon and accidentally made some wings!  I thought it would be rude not to try and make a body to go with, so after a few attempts...




I made a dragonfly!

I tried all sorts of beads of different shapes and sizes and I think this was the best fit.






I then added it to a ring base.  It took three attempts to get it attached satisfactorily - I still think I might try it differently next time. 



 
 
I love his bug-eyes that stick out the side of his head!




I'd like to enter this in to a few challenges:
Cupcake Craft Challenges - anything but a card
Anything But A Card - Things with wings
