Summer Azure

Standard

IMG_3578Summer Azure, ready to go on a fanciful flight.

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.
