This daring species from the skimmer family shines with a metallic blue tail and translucent grey wings. Voracious in appetite, it devours small flying insects with precise vision and a near-perfect strike rate. For 300 million years, dragonflies have flown through two realms—air and water. Blazing with energy and poise in the summer heat, their colors reflect and refract the light; perhaps this is why they are linked to the breathers of fire, the majestic dragons.

This beautiful Blue Dasher Dragonfly Embroidered Brooch is the perfect accessory for any outfit. Featuring stunning embroidery with glass beads and sequins, this brooch makes a statement with its muted tones of grey and blue. Upgrade your wardrobe with this stylish and sophisticated piece.

Fair Trade Practices

Our artisans work in a comfortable work space and receive the benefits of social security and healthcare. All our artisans take home double the minimum stipulated wage and in some cases about three times the national level.

Additionally, a contribution is made to their retirement benefit fund with the intent to provide them with a secure future and a fulfilling life.

Trovelore's registered partner workshop is based in the New Delhi, Capital Region of India. The number of artisans employed by the workshop exceeds ten, thus by law all registered establishments need to be compliant, engaging in fair trade practices providing artisans above the age of 18 years with a safe environment, paid at least minimum wage, social security welfare, and healthcare benefits.
