I don’t know what can have happened to all the butterflies this summer!  Our Buddlia bush is in full bloom, and so far we’ve counted about six butterflies on it.  Which is odd because usually it’s just covered in them at this time of year.

Maybe  that’s why I’ve  started making my own!

I’ve been using the fine black stringer method to draw them on a free formed bead.  First one has dichroic in it, but I’ve run out so I’ve just used some bright transparents.

And here they are, in my garden.

Dichroic Pink Butterfly

Purple Butterfly

Orange Butterfly

Blue Butterfly

I hope all the real ones come back next year!

I did see a dragonfly though…now there’s a thought!
