Dragonfly's can be a symbol of self that comes with maturity. They can symbolize going past self-created illusions that limit our growth and ability to change. The Dragonfly has been a symbol of happiness, new beginnings and change for many centuries. The Dragonfly means hope, change, and love.
A slow process to make, this piece combines old and new skills. The body of the dragonfly is hand forged from 100% repurposed sterling silver and hangs from a 15 inch sturdy chain. The chain is finished with a sturdy S hook and a tag showing my makers mark. It sits against the skin so comfortably and will wear well in all seasons. A talisman piece that will certainly become a true family heirloom. The that looks great worn alone or even better layered with multiple other necklaces. Strong and everlasting, this is a true collectors piece that is sure to become an heirloom.
*A big thank you is necessary to Nicole Ringgold for sharing her techniques with the metalsmithing community. Nicole offers classes in her Winthrop studio and teaches the techniques used in fabricating this piece.
Made with intention and love in my studio located in the Columbia River Gorge. Wild Heart Wares pieces are made slowly to ensure heirloom quality, and with proper care can be handed down for generations. All orders come gift wrapped using sustainable packaging. Please be sure and read my shop policies + shipping page prior to ordering.
Inspired by the wild, made to be worn by the wild at heart.
