Butterfly Pendants

I recently have been exploring new techniques to add to my work. I was interested in creating some of my own cabochons. After doing a little searching, I decided I wanted to try my hand at creating cabochons with specialized paper and glass. I'll describe how I made these cabochons in another post, but I wanted to share some of the first pieces I completed with these new cabochons.

Here are two butterflies I created with paper, glass, and bead embroidery. They are wonderfully simple, but the pictures under glass are incredibly detailed.

Over the next few days, I'll share other pieces I've completed with these hand made cabochons. I have some more photos to take so that I can prepare these for my etsy shop.


  1. Wow, Jodi - these are gorgeous! I would love to know how you did them. Please follow up with a tutorial or description.

  2. Very pretty! Of course I might be biased because I love butterfly's :P

  3. Hi, Jodi. Love them, gorgeous. I looked at your butterflies in yr Etsy shop, they are stunning, too.

  4. Lovely Jodi. New techniques are what keep us fresh and excited. Congratulations!

  5. Fantastic! Love to see new ideas used with beadwork.
