Spring Dragonfly Earrings

Spring has sprung, the weather is beautiful and I am wearing a tank top!  This time of the year, I am always so grateful to live in the glorious Valley of the Sun.  While most of my friends are still shoveling snow out of their driveways, I’m watching hummingbirds hover over my blossoming honeysuckle.  This cute (and easy!) pair of earrings really reflect my sassy, springy mood.  Our dragonfly is made out of Swarovski crystal in sapphire, but you can use any color you prefer.
