With their glittering wings and effortless grace, it’s no wonder that darting dragonflies are the source of countless legends. For us at Petalura—named for a species of dragonfly—they’re a sign of growth through transformation. After all, dragonflies spend most of their lives as nymphs before emerging into their agile, iridescent adult form. Our handcrafted bronze dragonfly necklace is an empowering gift for any woman facing change. Which, let’s face it, is every woman. Handcrafted in Turkey of bronze, 22k gold vermeil, and an oxidized sterling silver chain.
The dragonfly symbolizes change according to Native American legend. Right now we are getting ready for the “new normal” and things are never going to be the same - which might be good. I wear my dragonfly necklace to remind myself to be open for new things. I can adapt. I can rise to the challenge like a dragonfly on the thermals. I love my necklace. Thank you for designing it.
I gave it to a friend and she wears it often. She loves it. I have ordered the earrings and they are on back order. Thank you.
i like it. i had planned a big change this year, moving from my country home to a New York studio apartment in my daughter's building. Co-VID wrecked that plan. Something struck a chord when I saw this necklace, and I feel hopeful with it. I'm not the "new age" type, so it's surprising to me!
The photo of the pendant in the catalog shows that the edge has a clean gold trim that evenly circles the black center area with the dragonfly. The one that I received had the black coating smeared onto the gold trim and on the dragonfly, so that it looked cheap and poorly made. I liked the chain very much, and if the pendant had been similar to the catalog I would have kept it.
