This is my entry “Burlesque Butterfly” for the Challenge of Beaders United. The theme was Wings. I had this butterfly for some time, and the idea of attaching it to leather was already in my head. Initially I wanted the butterfly just surrounded by beads, but that is not me, I ended up covering a part of the wing with drops, ultra-suede and beads and let him blend into the leather necklace.
About the Artist: Estrid de Wit
My name is Estrid. I started making jewelry a few years ago and I love it, especially the beadwork bracelets and necklaces. I get my inspiration from the materials I work with, the people around me and lovely pictures that live in my imagination. I love using beautiful material like Swarovski and Miyuki.
I don't have a selling website, but you may always adress directly to me if you want to know the price of one of my items.
You can find me at Artconventions. Lately at the National Art days in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. You may only take part of this event after nomination from a jury.
