Butterfly Beaded Dangle Necklaces

Good evening, everyone…I have a quick project to share with you tonight 🙂 Design team member Heidi Blankenship made a series of beautiful butterfly necklaces to showcase some of the awesomeness in the ButterBeeScraps shop.

All of these necklaces are made using the Bronze Butterfly Metal Filigree Embellishment (#638-B).  Heidi first painted the butterflies using Krylon flat white spray paint, and buffed the paint off the high spots using fine steel wool (#0000).  She then punched two holes in each butterfly using a small metal hole punch.

Heidi chose to make her first necklace pink.  She added an SS16 and two SS12 Light Rose Flat Back Glass Rhinestones on the body of the butterfly.  To make the dangle, Heidi used a Bronze Ball End Head Pin, bronze daisy spacers from her stash, a Bronze Filigree Bead Cap (#CAP046-B), a 4x6mm and a 6x8mm Rose Pink Pearlized Faceted Glass Abacus Bead.

Heidi chose to keep her second necklace neutral, using an SS16 and two SS12 Clear AB Flat Back Crystal Rhinestones on the body of this butterfly.  For the dangle, Heidi used a Bronze Ball End Head Pin, a Bronze Filigree Bead Cap (#CAP052-B), Clear Rhinestone and Bronze Rondelle Spacer Bead (#BD006-B/CL), a 4x6mm Clear AB Faceted Glass Abacus Bead, and an 8x12mm Clear AB Faceted Glass Teardrop Bead.

Heidi made her third and final necklace a light blue color.  On the body of the butterfly, she used an SS16 and two SS12 Aquamarine Flat Back Glass Rhinestones.  For the dangle, Heidi used a Bronze Ball End Head Pin, a Bronze Filigree Bead Cap (#CAP052-B), Clear Rhinestone and Bronze Rondelle Spacer Bead (#BD006-B/CL), and aqua colored beads from her stash.
