I believe accidents happen for a reason. They show and teach us things we might otherwise overlook.

For instance, I try to make all dragonflies slightly unique in their wing angles and shape, and curve, if any, of their bodies. I do not consider a body that has creased in my bending process as acceptable for sale.

I did bend one a tad too far this morning while making a large bunch of Dexter’s – from the 496 blanks I assembled for the last contest. In an effort to correct… though from past experience, I know it can’t be restored… I came up with this.

Center Dragonfly – Old. All surrounding Dragonflies – New.

So what do you think? I’ll be making about 150 like this today. After today, it depends on your opinions. Please weigh in.

Thanks for you input.
