Dragonfly Fantasy

We offer two different versions of this magnificent necklace design: teal and pink/purple. You can buy the components individually, or buy all the components together as a necklace kit (see the item below called All Components to make...). These necklaces are also available already assembled.

Necklace length: From the Waterlily Toggle Ring to the Bead Pod Toggle Bar, the necklace is 20.5 inches long. The dangle suspended from the Waterlily Toggle Ring (which includes the lampwork bead link and Art Deco Dragonfly) is 3.5 inches long. Total necklace length: 24 inches. If you would like the necklace to be longer, buy more of the chain. The links of the chain open and close like jump rings. So you don't have to cut them.
