We just love the organza wings, so Joanne has created another design for you for your inspiration. These enchanted dragonfly wings look beautiful and are sure to get your crafty hands fluttering.
We would love to see your designs and remember these wings aren't just for jewellery, why don't you embellish gift boxes, or jazz up a handbag, or even embellish onto a handmade card, there are so many ways you can use these wings. Feel free to share your creations with us on our Facebook page Beads Direct & Friends
Happy Beading :) Xx
Dragonfly wings organza 59x11 green
Pinch Bail heart gold plated 4mm
Jumprings gold plated 6mm
Earwires gold plated 19mm
Chain - I used the peridot semi precious gold plated chain 2.5mm
To prepare the wings - Fold in half and place a small amount of glue at the top of the wings. This will help create a hole in the wings and prevents them from fraying. Once dry pierce a hole in the top and clamp the heart bail over the top of them. Attach them onto an earwire using a jumpring.
Cut the chain in two lengths, one measuring 6cm and the other 4cm. Attach the two lengths of chain onto a jump ring and attach onto your earwires with another jumpring.
We hope you enjoyed this project. Please don’t forget to rate it and please do visit any of our social media pages to share your finished piece. We would be delighted to see how you did it Your Way.

"Just used my new kumihimo handle and weighted bobbins and they are great. My kumihimo has never been so neat and the thread/ weave so tight. It's great."
