I love the elegance of the blown glass ornaments on my Christmas tree. These instructions are for a wonderful, whimsical closed wing moth or butterfly. Blown glass beads are also known as Mercury glass beads because of the shiny silver coating applied to the inside of the glass. They are difficult to find, because there is only one company (located in the Czech Republic) that continues to manufacture these beautiful beads. I have created this design with beads that are available in the US. This pattern will provide information about finding the proper materials / beads needed to complete the ornament. And of course the pattern also includes detailed instructions, with color photos, on how to create your very own heirloom, blown glass ornament. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY None SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 2.5 inches X 3 inches

Recommended with this pattern
