A Bracelet to go with the Butterfly

About this design:

This is way the Abstract Butterfly was supposed to look (more or less). I used the same colors and beads with a few variations and just arranged them a bit differently. Now the butterfly has a buddy. The last photo is of them together.


various agate and carnelian beads, seed beads, 14 and 24 gauge wire

    Thanks again for all of the comments and compliments. You can probably tell that I luuuuv copper wire. I find it easier to work with than silver plus it is such a warm color. If you haven’t tried copper, give it a go. It is great stuff.
