Green Butterfly - a beaded suncatcher

I created this butterfly-shaped beaded suncatcher from steel wire and an eclectic mixture of glass beads. These beads, with which her wings and abdomen are decorated, come in varying translucent shades of green, and varying shapes, including stars.

 

The lower wings of this butterfly curve into a point at the ends. Between these two points, this suncatcher measures 11cm (4.5") wide. From the tops of its wings to the bottom, it measures 10.5cm (just over 4") high. A loop of dark green ribbon is tied through a loop between her curled antennae, allowing her to be hung by a window to catch the sunlight, or in any plain corner of your home to add a little colour and quirky handmade style.

 

Thank you for taking the time to view this butterfly.
