Butterfly Gardens

Just a quick post to share "Butterfly Gardens" with you:


"Butterfly Gardens"

The inspiration for this necklace comes from these GORGEOUS artisan lampwork beads made by the fabulously talented Jennifer Jennings of  The blues, periwinkles and earth tones work perfectly with the etched copper butterfly and handmade bead caps.


I also made a sweet pair of earrings with the same beautiful beads, and I love the way they look with the necklace.


Hand-coiled copper wire links and wire-wrapped copper beads I picked up at Rings and Things' unbelievable bead show in Mesa complete the chain that closes with a handmade clasp.

You can find this summery set in my etsy store.

Have a fantastic rest of your long weekend!

So cool. Did you texture the butterfly yourself? I picked up a bunch of texturing plates at the last BeadFest and was amazed at how much fun it was. And very cathartic to pound the heck out of metal! :-)
