Dragonfly Brooch in copper is designed and crafted by artist Cindy Cantelon.
I love dragonflies, they are amazing insects, not only beautiful but beneficial in the way they eat the mosquitoes, then I'm really loving them. We have a pond in the back yard and if it wasn't for the dragonflies that eat the biting bugs it would be really hard to enjoy being outdoors.
I made this piece as the smaller of my two dragonfly brooch designs but it still represents a life size insect. I work details both on the front and back and solder a strong solid nickel pin clasp.
The original Dragonfly was first carved in wax, then using the ancient art of lost wax, cast into a bronze, a perfect replica of the wax dragonfly. Reproduced in fine silver pewter, hand finished and either left as silver pewter or electroplated with heavy coat of pure copper. A beautiful iridescent patina is created on the pure copper surface and then sealed with a clear protective coat to keep the copper from oxidizing.
I also make this Dragonfly design in silver pewter or blue green copper patina,here are the links:
