Wire Butterfly Earrings or Pendant
by Catharine Temaluru
Catharine created these Taurins Earrings ("taurins" means butterfly in Latvian) from copper wire, using thin wire to wrap a thick gauge wire in the form of a butterfly, accented with Swarovski beads, and attached 2 floral lampwork beads. Then, a pearl at the end of a chain drop for delicate effect. She suggests that you could even remove the ear wires and attach a larger jump ring or bail, to convert into a pendant!
