Butterfly Cethosia Biblis


Red (Malay) Lacewing Cethosia Biblis inhabits South Asia.
The caterpillars of this butterfly live on passionflowers and get the poison of the plant, thus, the butterflies are also poisonous: red stipes on the wings warn birds and other animals that the butterfly is inedible. Black and white ornament on the wings looks so like letters that the species was named "biblis" which means "book".
The span of its wings is 8 cm.
This beaded butterfly is woven of 9 colours.

The pattern includes a photo of the finished butterfly, a palette of needed toho beads, 7 graphs, from picking the first beads up to the finished piece with showing the way of the thread in each graph. The colours in each bead are numbered for easier work. Such butterfly can be used as a brooch, a hair slide, a central part of a necklace or simply as a nice souvenir.
