Rivers Edge Dragonfly Suncatcher WIPS

Bringing Nature to Life with Copper Wire Art

Imagine a warm summers day, walking by a river and the sight of dragonflies and river darters buzzing around the water. This artisan suncatcher features a rich and vibrant red and orange dragonfly, framed with translucent swirls of the water. He adores a sunny window and comes to life when the sun shines.


  • Dead soft raw copper wire that has been oxidised and polished to create depth and textures.
  • Carnelian, agate, Czech glass and aventurine beads.
  • Finished with a liquid gloss varnish to seal the design.
