Butterfly Dance


About this design:

This was my attempt at going out my box, by adding some bead weaving into my design. I also added their antennas with some bronze wire. I made the spiral rope chain in March, and didn't know what I should do with it. So I went to my stash and found the butterflies. I'm pleased with the results.

Components:

Smoky Quartz, Butterfly focal, Czech glass, various seed beads, copper caps, jump rings, spacers, and clasp.

    Very intriguing. This piece just has so much going on! I don’t think I could do the bead weaving it looks so complicated.

    Thanks so much everyone. When I designed this I was thinking that the butterflies were skipping along the pebbles. Then they came out and twirled(spiral rope chain), and came to land on flowers. So I wanted to add a cluster of little lucite flowers at the jumpring, but I didn’t have any in stash.
