Made from recycled beads, this Scarlet Darter dragonfly makes a vibrant flash of colour in the reedbeds. The darter has a shorter, broader body than other dragonflies and these chunky beads were ideal. The wings have also been cut from recycled card to complete the look.
The clump of reeds is also made up from recycled card, beads and buttons with a dried seedhead and some stone chippings creating their own colourful environment. They are set against printed green watercolour-effect paper and a wide mountboard.
The white box frame is 25.5cm (10 ins) square and 4.5cm deep. It has a hanging hook on the back. Each Beaded Beasties artwork is a unique creation and can help to bring a little piece of nature inside.
