The dragon fly is symbolic for change and being okay with it. Here is a story: The Dragonfly Once, in a little pond, in the muddy water under the lily pads, there lived a little water beetle in a community of water beetles. They lived a simple and comfortable life in the pond with few disturbances and interruptions. Once in a while, sadness would come to the community when one of their fellow beetles would climb the stem of a lily pad and would never be seen again. They knew when this happened; their friend was dead, gone forever. Then, one day, one little water beetle felt an irresistible urge to climb up that stem. However, he was determined that he would not leave forever. He would come back and tell his friends what he had found at the top. When he reached the top and climbed out of the water onto the surface of the lily pad, he was so tired, and the sun felt so warm, that he decided he must take a nap. As he slept, his body changed and when he woke up, he had turned into a beautiful blue tailed dragonfly with broad wings and a slender body designed for flying. So, fly he did! And, as he soared he saw the beauty of a whole new world and a far superior way of life to what he had never known existed. Then he remembered his beetle friends and how they were thinking by now he was dead. He wanted to go back to tell them, and explain to them that he was now more alive than he had ever been before. His life had been fulfilled rather than ended. But, his new body would not go down into the water. He could not get back to tell his friends the good news. Then he understood that their time would come, when they, too, would know what he now knew. So, he raised his wings and flew off into his joyous new life!

The story on the left is a story from an unknown source and I have read many variations of it.  But the point to the story is one of change.  Having been extremely creative all of my life I've longed to break out of the mundane and into a world where I could earn a living doing what I love, creating!  With my jewelry, I have boldly stepped out to make a change to do that very thing! The dragonfly means many things in many different cultures, but the most prominent is Love, Hope and Change!

Several years ago I read a series of books by Diana Gabaldon.  One of the books in the series was titled, 'Dragonfly In Amber'.  I fell in love with that phrase right then and there.  In that particular book, the main character, Claire stumbled across a large piece of amber and inside was a fossilized dragonfly.  Very fitting for jewelry.
