What advice would you give someone starting this project? Becareful when you put the holes around the edges because the metal is not as strong as you think it is and the wire can break through if you have hammered it a few times-make sure you space them out and leave enough space for your beads- take your time, no rush, and dont get upset if something doesnt look quite the way you want it too. Add your own touchs like glitter or different colored beads or even make the butterfly smaller and join them together to make a necklace- dont limit yourself to a pattern-

I forgot to tell you, the rotten eggs are what gave it the browned/rustic look, I could not find liver of sulfer locally though I have located some since at firemountain- The eggs did work though not as dark as I would of liked.
