This listing is for either the Dragonfly necklace, the earrings, or both together.

Necklace made with a gunmetal dragonfly focal centerpiece, Czech glass beads, and Austrian crystal. This whole necklace contains little pieces of history.

The dragonfly was made using huge, old stamping machines from the 1930s that would "stamp" metal into shapes for jewelry. Think brass bees, butterflies, etc. Once this type of jewelry fell out of fashion back then, the machines were no longer used.

There was a recent revival of these types of jewelry components in the late 1900s and early 2000s using the same machinery.  They were expensive to operate, and astronomical to repair ... so once they broke down, they would never be fixed, and those jewelry components would be history, so to speak.

I can no longer find these dragonflies ... not sure if the machinery finally broke down, but I have a handful of them.  Once they are gone, they are gone.

The Czech glass beads came from a Czech glass bead manufacturing company that also no longer exists. I purchased them almost 20 years ago. Again, I only have a handful of them.
The little purple Austrian crystals are from the largest crystal bead manufacturer in the world - who just discontinued their bead line.
Your choice of either the necklace, earrings, or both. The necklace can be made in either 15", 16", 17" or 18"

Anklets Sizing

A Bead Apart Jewelry Anklet Sizing Guide

What Anklet Size Are You?

1. Measure up against skin where you want anklet to fall (above ankle or draping below ankle).

2. If you don't have a measuring tape, use a string, or a thin strip of paper, then measure that with ruler.

3. Add roughly ½ inch and that is the length to order. Don't see your size listed? Leave desired length in comments or send me a message after ordering.

4. Extender chain is a small chain attached to jump ring. Adds up to an additional inch of length. Good if unsure of size, or if ankles sometimes swell. Select "Yes" or " No" when adding to cart.
