Butterfly Choker Set

A while back I bought a large number of spiral cages and spring coils in a clearance sale at a ridiculously low price. "They'll come in useful one day" I thought . . . so there they sat for quite some time in my bead stock. I was never quite sure what to do with them, and then in a moment of boredom I was playing around and came up with this idea . . .

Using memory wire I simply threaded them on with some olive beads (AB) and faceted beads (AB) . With the addition of a butterfly charm I had a choker and bracelet set.

To complete the set I made a simple pair of net weave earrings using black seed beads and some of the faceted beads and suspended them from a pair of black filigree droppers (which for some reason continually insist on photographing a rusty looking brown!)

I now have only one regret . . . why didn't I buy more of those coils and cages?

Thank you for taking the time to look.

I like the way you put the butterfly, not leaving a gap between the rings, on and combined the spirals with other beads.
