Here is my new butterfly necklace that I assembled this week … just in time for Spring!
I am so pleased with how it came together!
It is assembled using silver chain, real butterfly wings encased in resin, little stainless steel butterfly charms, lots of jump rings and a lobster clasp.
I’ve taken photos in various light to try to showcase the depth and variation of color of these beautiful butterfly and moth wings. It’s amazing to me how different the wings appear depending upon whether they’re in natural sunlight, indirect light, or under a lamp!

Woo Pig Sooie! Razorbacks! #wps
So, I’m a fan. Wooooo PIG Soooooooie!! We call the hogs!
I was born to parents that were college students at the University of Arkansas. Both graduated as Razorbacks. Even though I graduated from U.A.L.R., I’ll always be a Razorback fan. How could I not; after all, half of the baby and toddler photos of me are of me wearing Razorback gear. Really. 🙂
Now, as my oldest daughter is in middle school, uniform code allows her to wear collegiate apparel on Fridays. She has lots of Razorback T-shirts and hoodies, so we decided to make some Hog accessories! Cute, right? LOVE!
We bought artisan glass lampwork beads at Argenta Bead Company and online via eBay. She arranged them onto a bead design board, then she threaded them with memory wire; I added the clasp for her! I don’t mind spending a bit extra for these neat glass beads, since we’ll both make good use of the accessories. Her: at school on Fridays; me: on Saturdays watching the game. Love.
Enough with talking, here are the photos: (click on photos to enlarge them)
You already knew I make LOTS of jewelry, right?
