Cruciform Dragonfly (OBW365)

I am happy to be participating in the Our Beautiful World link party today.  It has been awhile since I've had the chance to participate there.  The theme for this week is beads.



These are photos of a dragonfly necklace that I made in July.  The dragonfly has a rather cruciform shape, and the overall design of the necklace is reminiscent of a rosary.  I enjoyed using non-religious items to invoke religious imagery.  I also enjoyed finding interesting ways to photograph the necklace.  


If you would like to see more beautiful bead photos from around the world, then I invite you to check out the Our Beautiful World blog.  Have fun!

I love the way you photographed your necklace. The scrolling of the beads makes it so interesting. And the necklace itself is very lovely.
