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!


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!
