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

Supplies

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

Glue 




Step 1

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. 

Step 1

Step 2

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.
