Summer Is A Comin' In

It's been warm summer weather where I live, so I decided to re-introduce some non-wintry glass button dragonfly necklaces that I remade the other day. At one time I amassed a pretty colorful collection of these painted beauties and only have a couple left.

At one time I was doing a lot of filigree wrap. I filed the glass shank off the button backs and used some epoxy to hold them in place before folding the ends of the filigree over them, thereby assuring that they somehow won't shift or fall out - we don't want that! I changed the wire-wrapped freshwater pearl chains for simple gold-filled chain, for a cleaner look.
