Butterflies are Purple

About this design:

I loved this little ceramic butterfly link and I wanted something to go well with the Green Girl Studio butterfly clasp I had. I had a time with finding the right beads to go with it. In the end I thought they all just blended rather than matched.

    I think this is a very pretty piece; sometimes blending is more interesting than matching. I’ve found when I try to match it doesn’t happen; when I don’t it seems like everything does. Great bracelet!

    Beautiful colors! I agree with Judy about blending being more interesting. This piece has a great contrast of shapes and the colors accent the focal wonderfully.
