In this tutorial you'll learn how to weave a pair of lime butterfly earrings with crystal bicones and seed beads. Beading is made easy with these step-by-step instructions and full color illustrations. Months ago, I noticed a few tiny round balls which looked like white seed beads on my lime plant. Days later, those white 'beads' strangely disappeared. Then I saw little creepy crawlies resembling bird-droppings munching on the fresh new leaves of my plant. Out of curiosity, I brought them indoor and fed them generously with my citrus leaves. It was a great pleasure watching their development. After about three weeks, a couple of beautiful black-spotted yellow fluttering butterflies emerged! Almost immediately, I released them back into the garden. What remained are these cute beaded butterflies earrings that I've made out of 4mm bicones. My butterflies measure 2x2 cm wide. You will receive the tutorial in PDF readable format.

Always captivated by the sparkle of jewelry. Curious to know how to make them. Especially love the soft sheen of pearls. Perhaps it's because part of my name is in it. Started to learn beading skills and now deeply in love with it. Please let me share this joy with you.
