Do you find yourself drawn to the iconic symbol of the dragonfly? Have you held your breath in awe and fascination as a dragonfly alighted upon your hand? It’s no wonder that this beautiful, fragile looking insect is so beloved. Iridescent bodies soaring and darting through the warm summer air on shimmering gossamer wings have mesmerized us since childhood. But what is the symbolism behind this mysterious winged creature?
In North American Zuni Indian lore, the dragonfly was revered as a messenger who carried prayers from our world to the spirit world. Some Native American tribes held the belief that ancestral spirits traveled through the veil between these two worlds riding on the backs of the dragonfly. Collectively throughout most cultures it is a symbol of transformation, rebirth, strength and harmony.
Over 300 million years ago, there existed a formidable ancestor of the beloved dragonfly and it boasted a wing span of two and a half feet! Although our present day version is thankfully only a fraction of his ancient counterpart, don’t be fooled by his unassuming grace …for it is a lesser known fact that the glorious dragonfly is also a ferocious hunter and a fierce opponent.
In contrast to the dragonfly’s power, this beautiful hand-pierced copper pendant is suspended by delicate lilac and lavender glass seed beads. Olive serpentine and copper beads accent and compliment the design. The handmade hook & loop copper clasp is cleverly shaped as a dragonfly, ensuring that every detail has been exquisitely designed for you. This comfortable custom beaded chain is 18" in length, plus the width of the dragonfly pendant (3 3/8"). A jewelry care guide is included with every purchase and returns are hassle-free.
Will your dragonfly pendant serve as a connection between you and a loved one who has passed on? Will he symbolize a transformational period in your life? Or has his simple beauty captured your heart?
