Small dragonfly with iridescent wing made from recycled metal

This is a small dragonfly with iridescent wings. I have made it from 4 knives, spoon, teaspoon, ball-bearings, cutlery handle and an asortment of stainless steel rods. Each dragonfly is unique, so dimensions can change, depending on the knives I use. This dragonfly is meant for the indoors, because I have varnished the wings to protect the heat tempered colour effect. The reference photo I used is courtesy of @joaomsbento of Instagram
