Taurins Earrings by Catharine Temaluru (click to view larger)

Catharine created these Taurins Earrings (“taurins” means butterfly in Latvian) from copper wire, using thin wire to wrap a thick gauge of wire in the form of a butterfly, accented with Swarovski beads, and attached to lampwork beads which suggest flowers. Then, a pearl at the end of a chain drop for delicate effect. Catharine suggests that you could even remove the ear wires and attach a larger jump ring or bail, to convert a butterfly earring into a pendant!

    I agree with Denny & Sandra. The simplicity and delicacy captures the true essence of what is the butterfly.

    WOW!! These are so sweet and delicate looking. I have to make some for myself. I usually only make OOAK items, but I’m afraid everyone’s going to want a pair of these…I know. I’ll just use different color crystals to make them all diff. Ahh. problem solved. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful idea with us.
