I did my best online research to see if this was an image of an actual butterfly, but couldn’t find anything that matched exactly. Eastern-tailed blue seemed close, but that was much too much of a mouthful for a blog post.
A lovely brooch beaded ’round with perky blue fringe. The whole is about 2 inches tall, so large enough to be seen.
The cabochon is glass, which gives suitable heft. It’s held in place with a peyote bezel using a mix of 11° and 15º seed beads. This butterfly won’t be flying off unnoticed.
