In many cultures, dragonflies are considered a symbol of good luck. I love knowing this as I have always loved them and my daughter had gifted me with a dragonfly necklace that I would wear everyday. One day the chain broke from my dragonfly charm and I honestly felt lost without it. That was until I was able to find the perfect replacement - this gorgeous Natural Beauties Dragonfly Necklace from Waxing Poetic. I now have a very special dragonfly necklace that I can wear daily again.
