The golden glow of this Beaded Beastie dragonfly and its star-studded background add an air of adventure to this box frame artwork.
The piece's title comes from the recycled, high quality giftwrap that I used to cover the mount board. I love the geometric pattern with the lines and stars resembling an astronomical chart. I added extra metallic stars to the printed ones plus some golden washer beads. The central panel is covered with a golden, hand-marbled paper.
The dragonfly itself is made up of a mix of new and pre-loved beads. The head is a large antiqued-metal bead that looks rather like a satellite while the thorax uses another large bead with glitter resin. The rest of the body has glass crystals, acrylic and metallic beads in gold, amber and topaz shades. The wings are printed on acetate film.
The woodgrain-effect box frame is 25.5cm (10 ins) square and 4.5cm deep. It has a saw-toothed hanger on the back. Each Beaded Beasties artwork is a unique creation and can help to bring you a little of the wonders of nature.
