Watch Parts Butterfly with CD wings

This is only my third attempt at a watch parts butterfly.  This picture is an attempt at showing off what I am most proud of...the wings.  See here for body:…

I've been staring at a stack of old CDs, thinking that something could be done with them.  I finally got out my jeweler's saw and exacto knife.  This is the end result!
