Dragonfly - hand stitched brooch

Dragonfly - hand stitched brooch
Love this


Hand embroidered textile brooch featuring an emperor dragonfly with silver thread wings.

Wearable art that would enhance clothing, coat or hat.

This detailed study of a dragonfly resting on some reeds is stitched by hand onto fabric scraps with embroidery threads, then edged with dark green velvet ribbon to give it structure and a touch of luxury. The wings are stitched with silver thread which catches the light just like real dragonfly wings! There is a brooch back pin with a safety catch on the back to keep it secure. It measures just over 3cm x 5.5cm.

It's been photographed in natural light but remember that screens vary.

An ideal gift, especially for a nature watcher or a gardener.


The dragonflies that visit our garden pond are always exciting to see - the bright jewel-like colour and the delicate wings. Busy and fierce looking, armoured warriors...
