The Beauty of Spring Part 2

Thanks again to Artbeads.com, I was able to create my vision of "The Beauty of Spring" with this piece called "Metamorphosis." Funny enough, as soon as I saw the blue cat's eye cabochons on their website, I immediately envisioned a beautiful flower focal piece.

As I worked on the flower, it somehow evolved into a butterfly. Just the transformation of my own creation, let alone the actual lifespan of a real butterfly, led me to the title "Metamorphosis" because, really, nothing else was right.

To complete this piece, I incorporated the cat's eye cabochons into a center focal piece by creating the basic bezel out of blue satin delicas. After much deliberation on how to situate the focal, I used the 4-mm porphyr sapphire cat's eye round beads as the basic foundation for the necklace. I had a great time with this project and thanks again to Artbeads.com for the opportunity.

As always, Happy Beading!
