The Dragonfly

I have a fascination with Dragonflys. They are also known as "Horse Stingers" and "Devils Darning Needle". I found the folklore and information on this creature very interesting. My recent obsession is beading business card cases. The focal piece is a glass Czech Dragonfly button. I see dragonfly everyday living next to the Mississippi river. I have been carrying a beaded case for over a year. When someone asks what do you do? I say "I bead". They look surprised and say you do what? I pull out my business card case and have an example of my work to show and a card to hand out. I have spent hours searching the internet for Beaded Card Case and haven't found any like I am doing. I taught this last year at the Arkansas Beadcave and again this year Shreveport Bead Retreat. It was big success. This last one was completed on August 23rd. I used vintage nailhead beads as accents around the focal button. If you would like to have me teach this class in your area please contact me
