Handcrafted Dragonfly Necklace in Carnelian, Pearl, and Mother of Pearl. Dragonflies are symbols of renewal, positive force and the power of life in general. They can also be a symbol of the sense of self that comes with maturity. As a creature of the wind, the dragonfly frequently represents change. And as a dragonfly lives a short life, it knows it must live its life to the fullest with the short time it has.
