Pink Pearl Butterfly Choker by cyborgbutterfly Pink Pearl Butterfly Choker by cyborgbutterfly
I made this for my little sister's birthday. It's a week late *cringe* but it took me longer than I thought to figure it out. I thought it'd be easier, since I made the big one on the 'Spring' necklace. I made the mistake of using the same gauges of wire for the small one, and it ended up being too bulky for the original intent. It was supposed to be a brooch. I made it into a choker instead. I guess it turned out alright, everyone else seems to like it. I hope Rae-chan likes it~

Crafted of sterling silver and dyed freshwater pearls. The chain is half-byzantine and flower weave interspersed with pearls.

Very pretty, my sister would love it as well, as she loves butterflies. Good job, handmade gifts are always better than store-bought ones. :clap:

Ah, I seem to remember working on it for about a week or so. I could be mixing it up with another project, though. It's been so long. Hours, I'd guess about five or six.

This one is gorgeous! What gauge is the form of the butterfly?

I used 20 gauge for the form, 26 for the beaded pattern. I thought the design was a little bulky with the 20g after I put all the pieces together, though. I almost started over with 22 gauge, but I was already running late with the gift...I'm trying the next one with 22 for sure, to see if it'll hold up.
