*Flutter, flutter* II

I'm sure some of you remember the butterfly necklace I entered into a contest early this year. I love butterflies. There's just something special about them. Maybe it's that they start life so ugly and end it so fantastically beautiful. Whatever it is, they always catch my eye.

The little guy I entered into the contest was very very much out of my box. I don't really do resin work. I just decided to give it a go because I had to work within a color palate and thought it would be an interesting way to get the bold colors needed. If you haven't noticed, I'm more of a minimalist metal maven, myself... with maybe a mite of multicolor morsels mixed in once in a blue moon. (Sorry. That was bad. Even I want to slap myself.)

So, enter little butterfly guy II. He's hand cut from solid copper with a sterling silver accent on a sterling silver chain. He's more my style. In fact, I sort of love him. I want to keep him and hold him and hug him and stare at him until the cows come home (and I don't have any cows, so this could take a while). But, I can't hold a flutterbye captive. He needs to flutter and flitter and fly. He also needs some little flutterbye earring buddies, which will arrive shortly.

Hopefully he and his little friends will all flutter and flitter and fly away to a new home really soon.
*grin* Until then... enjoy!

Super classy! I think this looks really nice.
I think if you made earrings in the same shape as just the center of its body it would coordinate really well, as opposed to matching butterfly earrings.
That's what I thought when I looked at the picture... envisioned earrings looking like the silver (?) part.
And since I was too late to get a thank you for the feedback about the last jewelery I thought I better post my thoughts now ... not that you asked for them this time around ;)
I'm always one step behind.

Beautiful butterfly!

So far the best (well balanced) book I've run across about vaccines is the Dr. Sears Vaccine Book. There is also "How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of your Doctor" by Robert S. Mendelsohn, and What your Doctor May not tell you about Children's Vaccines by Stephanie Cave
You can also go to and hang out and read in their forums section. Some of it is a little out there even for me, but its crunchy with lots of good info about different topics.
I was wondering if the adoption would limit your choice until its finalized.


This is adorable :0)

I really like the butterflies. They are simple and pretty, nothing over the top. I am a minimalist when it comes to color, too. I don't wear a lot of jewelry, but I like the delicate look of the butterflies.
