I'm working on that big butterfly suitcase bag. I think I'll do a little semi 3-D effect, that's why I beaded part of the back wing. But, my mind and sketch pad kept going back to the cuffs. So I snuck in another bracelet. I love this moth piece and the silver background makes it seem even more jewelry like.


  1. Kate, these are amazing pieces (as usual). Your butterfly is so realistic! May I ask what backing you use to bead on to? I have been trying different media...felt, batting, etc.

  2. Robbie, this is that lacy stiff stuff.. That's what it's called, you can find it on the web. Happy beading!
