Wire flower and Butterfly

This is a hairslide I made for the Highfliers challenge over on the cb forum...I made the body out of a single piece of wire bound together at the top with thinner wire...then I wove seed beads around the bottom to form the body....the wings are made out of a single piece of wire,shaped and then attatched to the body...The wings are made with beads and thin wire woven between them...
This is the underneath of the slide....the attatchment part..
The front of the hairslide ...



This is what I ended up with after I sat down for the afternoon to play with my beads....I made the flower by threading on a single bead and then twisting the wire around it to form the flower..The flower was then attatched to the chain with thinner wire, all the beads around the flower are made with head pins and then attatched to the chain...

It hangs nicely when wearing....





This is a necklace and earrings I made for a swap over on the cb forum, I used two strands of tiger tail for the bracelet, seed beads and the larger beads are shells. The seed beads are threaded onto each wire and then joined together by one bead...The earrings are shell beads on head pins joined onto a silver plate ....


Thanks for looking.....Rachel x
