The "Vanessa" Necklace

Vanessa (Latin): a genus of butterflies
I made this one over the weekend, and I've decided to name it "Vanessa" because of the butterflies. (Not sure how long I can keep up the naming thing and try to actually make them mean something!)

This is a three-strand necklace, with ~20.5" strands. I used at least 6 different kinds of glass seed beads and bugles, in shades of sky blue through azure blue.
One strand has only seed beads on it. Another strand has four teeny-tiny metal butterfly beads. And the third strand has four 12mmx15mm azure glass bead butterflies spaced along the seed beads. The entire necklace is finished off with a twisted toggle clasp.Watch for the Vanessa necklace to be listed in my Etsy shop soon!
