Bronze and Turquoise Butterfly Necklace by Marina Wilson

Good morning, everyone!  Monday mornings can suck, can’t they?  Well, hopefully this will help get you through it…I have a beautiful bronze butterfly necklace created by design team member Marina Wilson to share with you today 🙂  Here’s a look at the completed piece:

Marina used the gorgeous Bronze Butterfly Pendant (#J922-B) from the shop as the main focal point on her necklace.  I absolutely love this butterfly, and it is super heavy and durable so it is perfect for making a longer necklace like this one.  I will tell you…if you like this butterfly, you may want to scoop one up because I can no longer get them so once they are gone, they are gone for good 🙁

To help balance the large butterfly, Marina also added a couple of large beads and connectors in the chain.  Here’s a really good look at these beads:

Marina got all of the beads from her stash; however, you can see how she layered the Gold Filigree Bead Caps (#CAP857-G) and Bronze Filigree Bead Caps (#CAP827-B) on the bottom of the turquoise beads.  Below her string of beads, Marina added Bronze Tibetan Style Connector Links (#J071-B).  Before adding the connectors, Marina did jazz them up a little using a combination of Antique Gold and Patina colored Gilder’s Paste.  The Patina color really does coordinate really well with those beads!  She also added an SS8 Clear AB Pointy Back Crystal Rhinestone to the center of each connector link.

Here’s a close up of the butterfly:

Like with the connector links, Marina also used the Gilder’s pastes to add a bit of color to the butterfly.  Finally, she added a touch of sparkle to the tip of each wing by adding one SS8 Clear AB Pointy Back Crystal Rhinestone to the tip of each wing.  If you’re a fan of Marina’s necklace and want a closer look, please hop on over to her YouTube channel and have a boo at the video she uploaded 🙂

Thanks a bunch for popping by!  I hope this project share helps make your Monday at least a little bit more enjoyable…Cheers!
