Beaded Dragonfly

My latest dragonfly creation is a fibre art piece with a silk embroidered body and heavily beaded wings. This is the first dragonfly that I have not made legs for and will create a copper wire stand instead so that it is suspended in the air. The image of the dragonfly in the window exemplifies the effect I am looking for.

The straight lines of multicoloured beads in the wings remind me of an abacus and add a distinctive quality to the piece. In art, whenever two dissimilar elements are brought together, a space is created for dialogue and poetic interpretation to take place.
