Just made a wire dragonfly brooch. The body is black (as with all my dragonflies) but wings/tail/eyes are golden. I bought this brass wire recently, but it was very hard to work with, so I don´t know if I want to use it again. I was hoping that it would work out, because colored wire does have a tendency to loose its color quite easily... enough for it to be an annoyance at least. The dragonfly turned out allright, but not perfect, and I don´t feel it to be of good enough quality to sell in my Etsy shop.
These dragonflies are my bestsellers, too bad they are so boring to make... And I mean really, really, really, I would reather be reading a paper about information retrieval, booooring! But I guess they are pretty! And I especially like black and gold together, so I might keep this one for myself... But I need to get a different golden wire so I can make more without the effort this one took. I would also love some dark blue wire, uncolored copper wire and perhaps turquoise/teal wire... and olive green, and dark dark red, and plum and....... I´ll stop there.
P.S. I do have one dragonfly in the shop right now, you can find it here.
