Here is my submission.  This is little dragonfly has a  beautiful faceted blue lace agate body and a rainbow moonstone microfaceted tail.  He is macrame 'd on sterilng silver wire.  He also features Swarovski crystals for eyes and tail tip.  Enjoy this little guy as a decoration or a brooch.  He could also be attached to you favorite hat or shawl.

He's cute.

I'm just wondering how he fits into the sea. Is he a special aquatic dragonfly? Does he have magic water powers? White and purple are very sea like, so the colors work.

I'd just like to know a little more about him!  Cheesy

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I'm obsessed with dragonflies and this just jumped off my computer. If I knew how to make these I would probably make thousands of them. Thanks for sharing.
