This beautiful butterfly can be used as a pendant, a charm or a brooch. Its wings are shaped; spreading out while showing a netlike wire, patiently and intricately weaved to cover the wings. The wings are embellished with a bead, as if ready to hover around your neck attached on a chain or beads of necklace. Creating this piece uses wire work techniques and is suited for intermediate and advanced level.
This Sparkling Wire Butterfly Pendant is a variation of the Butterfly Wire Jewelry which I pubslished earlier http://www.diylessons.org/Butterfly-Wire-Jewelry-Tutorial,name,101491,item_id,0,ad_type,ad_details. The tutorial shows you more advance steps on threading and weaving beads into each loop. You are free to use any color of crystals and seed beads, and turn your butterfly’s wings with sparkle. I hope you will enjoy making the jewelry!
