Sivia Harding's Dragonfly Neckpiece and Bracelet
are dazzling and unique. The neckpiece is created in two
pieces for a sculptural effect. Two different methods of using beads are used,
one for the body, one for the wings and neck cord. The matching bracelet echoes
the beading pattern found on the wings of the dragonfly.
