A Note from the Designer

"The dragonflies in my garden fascinate me and remind me of fairies. I find the variety of wing shapes and colors beautiful and inspiring. I wanted this piece to capture that magical and organic feeling. The dragonfly perches asymmetrically on a background of beautifully oxidized sterling silver with a flower and pink garnet leaves growing along it. The dragonfly symbolizes dreams, change, and enlightenment. Its intricately carved abalone wings speak to the beauty of change. I chose a soft, dreamy chalcedony for the dragonfly's body and iolite for its head because the stone represents intuition and psychic ability. This piece is very special to me, and I believe it will become one of my collectors' all-time favorites."

—Barbara Bixby

About Barbara Bixby
Barbara Bixby

Jewelry designer Barbara Bixby began her studies at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City at the age of 16. Although she started out with a focus on sculpture, she soon fell in love with jewelry design. "I love what I do as a jewelry designer. I am extremely lucky to have found my passion early for what would ultimately become my career," enthused Bixby.

After finishing her education, Bixby took a variety of jobs that allowed her to become more familiar with the world of fine jewelry. Eventually she was asked to design a personal collection for an established designer that was the initial inspiration to create her current collections.

In need of fresh inspiration, Bixby spent a year traveling the world and painting. Upon her return, she continued to develop collections for many highly renowned design houses before moving on to create her own intricate pieces. "My current collection is my most exciting undertaking to date. I use the jewelry medium to create a piece of art, with precious metal as my three-dimensional canvas and gemstones as my color palette."

Each piece combines Bixby's distinctive drawing style, her love of symbolism, and the unique attributes of gemstones. Her influences and inspirations come from a variety of sources - some as far-reaching as Asia and Europe and others as personal as her garden and country home. More than anything, though, her love of art has remained the driving force behind her work.

"I love to see people take my jewelry and make it their own. The way we present ourselves is an expression of our greatest work of art, the soul."

WHAT A TREASURE 50000000 STARS LOVE BARBARA THANKS FOR REDUCED PRICE. THIS IS A MATERPIECE BUY IT TODAY 09-14-13
Ummm I absolutely love and admire Barbara's creativity; however, when I received this bracelet, I was non 'wowed' by the colors. If I were wealthy, I would have kept it anyway because of the originality. For the price, I unfortunately was not swept away. I really wanted to love this. :( 08-25-13
Drabby Dragonfly Wish it was colorful abalone at over $470 with tax! You can find beautiful abalone for free on the beach, why must they use ugly stuff on expensive jewelry? The carved abalone wings were dull and drab with no life at all! I had also bought the matching enhancer, and it had the same looking abalone.Too bad because they were both nice designs. They both went back right away! 06-06-13
Colors dont come through I LOVE Barbara's style and real gems. However, The abalone is dull in the wings and the bracelet needs more punch! Color! I love the design and the bracelet, but for the price I am returning it. All it would take is some better abalone for wings! and some bright bling on the bracelet. No problem falling off for me, but just dull. I so wanted to keep it! I have many expensive pieces but this one only rates a 3 because of lack of color. Keep designing. 02-11-13
Bad design I was so excited to get this beautiful bracelet. I put it on for the first time and before even leaving the house the hinge opened and it fell off several times. I got in the car and looked and it was missing. apparently It had fallen off while I was digging in my purse. Then I went shopping and it probably came off 10 more times. Luckily I didn't lose it. I sent it back because who needs to lose a $400 plus bracelet! 01-11-13
poor quality Design is lovely but the bracelet does not stay "right side up"- always having to correct it. The abalone was dull and the pave garnet was hardly present. A piece of the abalone was missing. Very over-priced for abalone and little garnet. Quality control is very poor. These flaws should have been caught before sending. 07-27-12
Perfection This bracelet is perfection jewelry. I rarely write a review but this bracelet deserves a comment of praise. When one considers the process of creating this piece, it is a wonder that we can purchase it at this price. Thank you for bringing this unique and flattering bracelet to QVC. Barbara, you are fantastic!!! 07-17-12
Unique beautiful design! One of my favorite bracelets. The V shape curving down towards the hand is very attractive looking and the dragonfly is set at an angle which I love. I love all of the stones and the color of each one. I can't stop looking at it when I wear it. The workmanship is excellent and I am very happy with this purchase! 05-10-12
can't see pave fits like a glove, but can't see garnet pave, and piece is too overpriced for abalone. upgrade this design and i'm in. (kept her grasshopper enhancer though). 03-14-12
Very Unique This cuff is very unique. But I do have to agree with the other reviewer that it is a bit "dull" looking in color. When I received my cuff there was a flaw in the chalcendney stone so I returned it for another. When I received my replacement the color in the abalone was much brighter and it actually "flickers" in the light, just like a real dragon fly. I guess I lucked out. This is a beautiful piece of jewelry. It is very well made and has a nice weight to it. 03-08-12
Not comfortable It's a beautiful concept for a bangle, however it's not very practical. The wings kept getting stuck on my clothes and ripped my stockings, as well as the dragonfly kept turning over so I spent all day turning it right side up it got very annoying. Oh well, was so excited to get on onetime price easypay but it just wasn't for me. Certainly way overpriced - if I'm going to pay that much I expect the bangle to sit nice and comfortable so that I can use it all the time. 02-27-12
SPECIAL! I luv this cuff. It is made so well and the off to the side dragonfly is such a nice touch. I wear an eight inch and the large fits me just fine. Given the weight, unique design, stones, gold, and the cost of silver...this is a wonderful buy. Luv this little dragonfly sitting off to the side on my wrist. Have received many compliments. Thank you Barbara 02-24-12
