Butterflies are free


About this design:

I fell in love with this strand of Rock Crystal - and had to have it. When I found the butterfly - I knew it would be just the right touch - but didn't like the look of butterflies on both sides - so for balance I added the Black Obsidian and some black delicas for a little accent.

Components:

Onyx Butterfly, Rock Crystal, Black Obsidian, delicas

    I love crystal and it looks great with the onyx butterfly. I agree, this necklace needs to be asymmetrical.

    I’ll second that, Martham! Perfect asymmetrical design! Love the black accents to pick up the black of the butterfly! :D

    Another vote for aysmmetry – butterflies do their own thing – they aren’t boxed in with classical choreography – but the three smaller beads on the opposite side give the necklace a nice balance! :)
