Antique Land, Beaded Beasties Damselfly Box Frame

This Beaded Beasties box frame is made with mainly recycled materials and evokes something of the olde worlde, of sailing ships, trade winds and treasures from the East.

I have used golden and ivory-coloured pearlised beads from an old bracelet to create the damselfly and the exotic tree along with gold wire, leather cord and glass nuggets. An old leaf-shaped gilded brooch sits at the base of the tree. Everything is mounted on a background paper featuring an antique-style map and sheet music. Even the music provides a fortunate connection with its title 'Les Nymphes' because nymph is the name used for damselflies in their aquatic larval stage!

The damselfly has acetate wings printed with a vein pattern. Damselflies and dragonflies can be easily distinguished because, when at rest, the damselfly's wings lay back along the body whereas a dragonfly's wings are always splayed open.

The white box frame is 27 cm (10.5 ins) square and 3.3cm deep
