Butterflies in flight....



I'm so in love with these blue beads......
Saw Teri's bookmark with butterflies
and that's where the inspiration came from.
She uses split rings to make the butterflies,
but
this bracelet I've made
using four shuttles
With two centre shuttles for the core of the butterflies
Didn't want a border on them,
so as to give an appearance of free wings,
as if in flight..
.


.
That's what it looks like as a bracelet!
.


.
The lock of the bracelet made with
seperate strands of thread
in square knots...
to give a sliding lock......
with beaded danglers.....
.


.
so that it can be worn as a bracelet.....
.


.
or
an anklet!


Luv.

The beads are lovely, and so is the bracelet come anklet. Very effective and clever using four shuttles.

Lovely work! But I must confess that my brain locked at the very idea of four shuttles at once! ACK!
