Description

I love these dragonfly pendants, and adding the Miyuki Seed Beads seemed like a natural way to add color and sparkle! Use any color of 8/0 seed beads to achieve this look.

Susie Henderson, Auntie's Beads Owner

Instructions:
  1. Cut 12" of 22 or 24 guage wire. Lay about 1 inch of the wire at the back of the bottom of the dragonfly and hold in place with your finger. Wrap the wire around the bottom of the dragonfly one time, tightly.
  2. Add 3 8/0 seed beads. Keeping the beads at the front of the dragonfly, very tightly wrap the wire around the back and bring to the front. Add 3 more seed beads and repeat the process about 9 times.
  3. When the base of the dragonfly has been wrapped, add 7 or 8 seed beads and angle the wire from the tail to the top of the dragonfly.
  4. Take your wire from back to front and through the top loop of the pendant and create your bail.

Customer Reviews
so pretty
I bought the dragonflies and didn't know what to do with them. This project is easy, detailed, and helped me figure out what to do with the dragonflies.
