very cute! it got a little tricky once i got to the part with the second set of wings, so i had to improvise and wrap the wire up and down before doing the second set. it was hard to keep the first set of wings in place! but i love the outcome Happy

I'm totally making some of these dragonflies for my sister, she's obsessed with them. She even has a Dragonfly bathroom.

I used thinner wire than you did I think 'cause mine isn't as round, but still okay Happy
Since I don't like brooches so much I made a pendant ;)
