    This may be my favorite of your designs… I really like the way you used the butterfly in your multiple strand design. :-)
    Does the butterfly lay smoothly, or do you have issues with it wanting to turn around on the strand? I ask because I hate it when my metal pieces turn the wrong way.

    I am not a purple person but I love this. You have created a beautiful piece of jewelry. I think since finding this site 3 weeks ago I can honestly say I really do not have a favorite color anymore. LOL. I also luv butterflies and anything connected with my yard outside. I have a master gardners certificate in OHIO but let me tell you it would be another whole ballpark here in FL. More plants to love, more bugs to shy away from. Just too much like fun. And now the LIMA BEAD BUG. ROTFLOL
