To weave this butterfly we’ll need fireline, a beading needle size 11-15 and 12 colours of beads (two toho palettes are given: a metal-lined beads palette and an opaque beads palette). The pattern includes a photo of two finished butterflies (the one made of metal-lined beads and the opaque one)and 2 graphs of weaving of the insect. The thread way is shown.
Such butterfly can be used as a pendant, or a brooch, a hairslide, an earring. The butterfly is quickly and easily woven. It'll take you about an hour or a bit more to be completed.
