Use a found object in a jewelry design…

I “found” the butterflies twice. The first time was on the clearance rack at Hobby Lobby – about two years ago. The second time was Friday when I was digging through the gardening box. The butterflies (made from feathers) were flower pot decorations.  They had a wire attached that I cut and shaped into a eyelet to attach to the chain.

A closer look at the flowers.  They are a very nice acrylic with no visible seams.  The leaf is Czech glass.  All findings are gold plated.
