After the red and orange butterfly project
I decided to make another one for myself. This one is a seamless cuff, featuring a matte gold and silver background, and sparkly blue butterflies up front. I was going for the iridescent effect of Morpho butterflies...

Thank you! It came from a commission that I did for someone. She asked for red butterflies and I just had to do a blue version.

Thanks so much! This was actually started by a commission piece that I just had to repeat with other colors...

Very beautiful! I too love 2-drop:)!

Thank you! I think it makes curves more rounded than the 1 bead version, so it's better for more organic patterns.
Clareesi's avatar

I love it! The colors are so happy and vibrant, and the pattern itself is wonderfully balanced and dynamic. The closure is cool, too!
Clareesi's avatar
Aww, thanks a lot:)!

Thanks so much! It was born out of commission where the customer wanted red butterflies on a green background. I liked the design I came up with so much, I wanted to see how it would repeat with other colors.
