Handcrafted Jewelry — Designed to be Different

Red Butterfly


This necklace was commissioned for a bride who’s getting married this month. She loves butterflies and wanted one to wear on her special day.

I used Delicas for the butterfly — glossy and matte red, glossy white for highlights, and deep blue for the body. The strap is done in chevron stitch, with translucent Czech seed beads.

The butterfly is small — about 3.6 cm (1.4 inches) wide and 3 cm (1.2 inches) high. The colours were chosen by the bride to match her accessories.

It took me several attempts to finalize the design. I like it so much I have a feeling it’s going to appear again soon. 🙂

Beads? What can I say — they snuck up on me when I wasn't looking. Now I'm hooked.
