About this design:

After I made a FP with the Golem Studio bead bead, I knew I want to make a bracelet with it, made my own PC beads with the colors from the FP, etched a butterfly blank and my son soldered a clasp hook for me underneath that butterfly, so it is a collaborated effort.


Golem Studio bead, copper blank, New Jade, Tierra Cast butterfly bead, beading wire and spacers are all from Lima Beads. My own PC faceted beads in 2 different colors.

    This is a gorgeous piece! The contrast of the copper and soft green is VERY striking.Adding that splash of turquoise was a great idea as well. Fascinating and lovely to look at.

    Asia, you never cease to impress! If I lived in Canada I would love to meet you and learn from you. You’re so incredibly talented! I just started making my own ball pins (like you!) And I always wondered how you hot your balls to look so red? Mine just look black from the soot. I love the way yours look in your jewelry. You’re a serious inspiration for me! I just love everything you create : )

    What a lovely piece of jewelry! And to know that so much of it is from the work of your hands and your sons. Drooling over your PC beads.

    Thank you so much everyone, Jet, the secret is to put them in cool water right away after you ball the wire as for thee rest of the wire, just a good elbow grease to polish them out, you can also opt for pickling, but that will take most of the rosy color. I use vinegar & salt as a green alternative to a chemical, hope that helps :D

    New jade is an all time favorite in that color family. Paired with Asia’s beads, its gorgeous. That butterfly is just… I can find word to adequate praise except to say I’d love it in my jewelry box.
