    This approx. 3x3" dragonfly brooch has marcasite detailing, aqua & silver wings and garnet eyes, on 925 sterling silver. Recently found this on a day trip with my good friend antiqueing (her passion), the shop owner said it was ca 1930s. Hope you enjoy my unusual vintage find

      Great looking brooch. Sterling jewelry calls for me lol.
    2. racer4four racer4four, 6 years ago
      Wow, awesome bug Jenni! I love the enamel and crystals.
    3. LaurenRedmond LaurenRedmond, 6 years ago
      This is so pretty Newfld! It's colours are so summery! This reminds me of my Granddad whose a gardener and he sometimes spends all day watching creatures like this on ponds- they look like little biplanes.
    4. Poire Poire, 6 years ago
      Gorgeous Jenni!!
    5. AnnaB AnnaB, 6 years ago
      The timing of this post is perfect, Jenni! The dragons are out now in hundreds or even thousands, zooming like mini jets over my lawn. I love watching them do their crazy dance and love your gorgeous brooch!
    6. Newfld Newfld, 6 years ago
      Thanks lisa and Thomas for the love, really happy you liked my dragonfly
    7. raven3766 raven3766, 6 years ago
      This is beautiful, I love the blue. I would wear it in a heartbeat!
    8. Poire Poire, 6 years ago
      Jenni, I have to say that you are the best commenter I have seen on this site! Your comments are always so lovely, beautiful, and on point. Your comments show that you really care and are interested. I don't know how you do it with all the wonderful comments! I can't seem to come up with anything other than "lovely" or "beautiful." You really have an exceptional talent in describing your appreciation of people's treasures. I have never once questioned any one of your comments as just flattery. Your comments are true and heartfelt. I'm jealous of that talent. ;-) I just wanted to put that out there. :)
    9. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 6 years ago
      Wow, just stunning!
    10. Newfld Newfld, 6 years ago
      Thank you raven for the nice compliments, I love the pale blue wings too, and would love to wear this on a black top sometime

      Mary, your words just bowled me over this morning, I can't tell you how great you made me feel, it's like you really "get" me as a person, I am so happy to know you can feel my sincerity in the things I say. I try to focus on the positive when commenting and have an original perspective (which is not always easy if there are many comments ahead of you), but the one thing I stay away from is acting superior or nasty - many folks here in the interest of "constructive criticism" are downright mean & quick to deflate you, which I think is cruel and out of place on this nice sharing website. So hearing really kind & sincere comments like yours are tops to me, and listen, that wonderful praise puts you right up there as an exceptionally talented commenter too!! Thank you my friend for the really great and thoughtful words, I am humbly grateful

      Thanks MrsT, so glad you liked my dragonfly and always appreciate your sweet compliments

      Many thanks for the love

    14. Newfld Newfld, 6 years ago
      Lol MyCountry, you sure can call me the dragon lady anytime, although somehow in my mind it makes me think of that 40s actress Gale Sondergaard who was so scary in Sherlock Holmes and The Letter movies - now there was a real dragon lady, she was great! Appreciate the kind compliment

      Pascale, I totally thought of you when I first set eyes on this dragonfly, I really hoped you would enjoy it and so glad you did, thanks for your wonderful compliment

      Phil thank you as always for the wonderful praise, I'm extremely happy you find this gorgeous as this is not my typical rhinestone or animal piece, I just loved that it is such a real looking creature with lovely wings

      Aww Mary, thank you for agreeing with Mary P about my commenting, you are such a super friend and I love that we have some great communication going, thanks for appreciating my sometimes streams of thought processing, love your great compliments & XOXO right back at ya!

      So grateful for the luv all

      Thanks so much Pickaboo and MrsT for loving my special dragonfly, I really hope to be able to find another nice deco piece soon as this was a very different brooch than my usual
    34. JenniferH JenniferH, 5 years ago
      Such a beautiful piece of jewelry..a beautiful piece of art! This pin is so gorgeous I would be afraid to wear it!
    35. Newfld Newfld, 5 years ago
      You're right Jennifer, it is intimidating, I haven't worn it yet but thinking I could easily lose it & can never replace it :( Thank you for your kind & understanding comment, compliments and love

    39. Newfld Newfld, 5 years ago
      Thank you OldeAsDirt for the very nice comment, very glad you liked this - I like dragonflies too, but better in jewelry than the real buzzer lol

      This is so lovely…
    41. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      With thanks to you all for the love

      Penny your kind words are most appreciated and this piece brings back such wonderful memories for me - finding it was so special & I fell in love with those large aqua deco wings on sight! Sad that the antique shop where I found it, like so many others closed due to the pandemic, seems today everyone buys online & even that is in crisis with the holiday shopping barrage
    42. inky inky, 2 years ago
      I’ve had that problem for awhile now (buying on line) as I live rural,and don’t have any antique shops in the town closest to me..buying on line is the only way for me..but will never take the place of the excitement of finding that over looked ‘treasure’ is terrible sad this pandemic has a lot to answer for..
    43. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      Just online for me too Penny, it's really safer these days but the pandemic really changed our world. I live in suburban NY but mail is at a standstill all this month with holiday ordering, I'll be lucky to get anything to post lol :) At any rate, happy holidays!
      - Jenni
