Azure Hawker, Beaded Beasties Dragonfly Box Frame
This grey box frame contains a miniature dragonfly world! The azure blue really does exist but this beaded version aims only to be a colourful interpretation!
Made from predominantly new turquoise crystals, blue glass, acrylic and silver metal beads, this dragonfly is strung on silver wire. The acetate wings are printed with a vein pattern. Its riverside habitat is interpreted with a cluster of bulrushes made from wooden beads and skewers with recycled greeting card leaves resting on a bed of natural gravel chips. It is all mounted on a printed watercolour background paper in rich blue and green shades.
The grey box frame is 20cm (8 ins) square and 33mm deep. It has a hanging hook on the back.
Each Beaded Beasties mixed media frame is unique and would make an ideal gift for any insect or nature lover.
