An iridescent dragonfly alights on your lapel, its body a collection of semiprecious gems and minerals: black agate, garnet, amethyst, peridot, citrine, blue topaz, and marcasitea traditional material in Thai jewelry. Dragonflies develop underwater, and when they emerge they shed their outer layer, revealing their typically brilliant colors. This granulated sterling silver pin, handcrafted in Thailand, captures the aerobatics and glimmering hues of these ''devil's darning needles.''
Lovely to wear, once I can get the clasp to work - received it somewhat broken - I have to really work at putting it on - then hope it won't come open - don't want to return it because it is out of stock, so I can't get a replacement, and otherwise I love it.
