I have been seeing butterflies everywhere I look right now. Have you?
Entire butterflies, parts of butterflies and wings are constantly catching my eye.
They are being cut from so many different fibers and materials.
Naturally I am very interested in seeing anything that is jewelry related.

The fashion imagery from Paris last week inspired me to take a closer look.

Isn’t this a showstopper?
Simple, elegant, collaged, photographed, beaded or metal. No matter how butterflies are featured they are a wonderful addition to a design piece.
Butterflies also appear throughout the
John Bead catalog. A simple search request for butterfly gave me dozens of categories to choose from. Here are just a few of my favorites.
Swarovski Beads, flat backs and pendants in dozens of colours and sizes.
Charms and pendants in various metallic colours.
There are butterfly trims.
You will find butterflies made from gem stones and pressed glass.
Metal blank butterflies are ideal to stamp words onto.
There dozens of gorgeous sequinned and beaded motifs. Costume designers love these.
You’ll even find butterflies in our craft area. These are made from foam.
