Fabulous Fridays: Dragonfly Pendant

I am sure that the National Geographic website Novica needs no introduction to any of you. If unique gifts created by talented artisans from around the world is what you’re after, then Novica is the best place to start your search. I love to browse all their items but their jewellery section contains items which are so unique and wonderfully made that I keep going back again and again. The beautiful thing about the items on this site is that a lot of the artisans are inspired by nature and this is reflected in their creations. This dragonfly pendant by Wayan Asmana from Bali is simple yet stunning. The artist has managed to capture the intricate beauty of a real dragonfly perfectly through his skillful manipulation of filigree strands.

I just love the delicate, feminine look of this beautiful pendant and it has been on my wish-list for quite some time now. Perhaps it’s not everyone’s cup of tea to walk around with an insect hanging around their neck but I have always found dragonflies to be so fascinating, so delicate and colourful, so whimsical and pretty that this pendent would be perfect for me and definitely a piece of jewellery that I would treasure forever.

  6. I think that's a question of taste. I don't like insects, so I would prefer a cat as a pendant, lol !

  7. i agree with you. like what i commented before, i love, love dragonflies (which i mistakenly called fireflies.. hahah). i once bought red, lacquer bowls decorated with dragon flies in saigon. they looked so pretty that i couldn't resist them. You think fireflies would look pretty hanging on my neck, too? LOL
