Metamorphosis


About this design:

I fell in love with this Green Girl butterfly, so the design started by adding the B. Diamond Swarovski Crystal to it, then I wanted to use the golden sheen obsidian and needed something to balance it, the Sm. Quartz Swarovski Crystal looked perfect! Finally I added pieces of flower weave chainmaille between the stones and crystals and the design was ready!

Components:

Green Girl Pewter Butterfly with Metamorphosis written on the back, golden sheen obsidian, B. Diamond and Sm. Quartz Swarovski Crystals, antic metal silver Bead caps, 5 and4mm metal Jumprings!
