BUTTERFLY BEAUTY

These gorgeous fluorite butterfly wings came from Szarka. Amethyst was used to represent wing spots. The Dragonfly Collection Tutorial by Abby Hook was the inspiration for many details on the butterfly anatomy. This was a challenge and a delight to work on. It took several starts to accomplish what I wanted. I think it is telling me that it wants to be a necklace.

Sterling silver wire, 18 g round and 28 g round, sterling silver beads, amethyst beads and garnets were used. The garnets were used for the eyes.

I love this, would there be a chance I could use the pattern?

What a great job! Abby sure is proud of you and your work. Thanks for never forgetting to pay credit to your inspirational sources - this is a polite thing, sadly not understood by all nowadays! Your new follower
