Butterfly Specimen

This necklace is one of my latest creations as an ICE Resin® Creative Team designer. When I showed it to my Hubby he asked if it
was a real butterfly so I guess my design was successful!

It's very easy to make.

I first cut a butterfly image from the Belles Dames Francaise flip book and used Modge Podge to adhere it to a plexi-glass circle.

Then I stamped a swirling dot design onto
a second plexi-glass circle using black Staz-On ink.

I placed the plexi-glass pieces into a round staple bezel with
the butterfly and stamping on the inside and used
pliers to crimp the staples holding everything into place.

I then showcased the butterfly pendant
between a couple of decorative corset clasp connectors.

For the neck cord, I added some pretty blue and pink organza ribbons and wrapped them with copper wire in a couple of places.

To finish it off I added one of my
handcrafted copper hook and eye clasps.

Every now and then I create with a little
bit of fluff and femininity...I am a girl after all!
