  • Wire cutter
  • Safety Pin

Step 1:

This brooch will have three parts. For the first part, cut the wire using the wire cutter in the required length. I cut a 3 cm length wire.

Since the shape would be like a butterfly, to make the first part which is the wing of the butterfly, twist the wire in the appropriate shape.

Take the plastic crystal beads and slide the beads along the wire. You can use multi-colored crystal beads as well.

Step 4:

Twist the edges of the wire together so that the beads are held within the string/wire.

Step 5:

Repeat steps 1 to 4 for the other wing of the butterfly. Wire of same length should be cut; preferably slide the same number of beads too.

Step 6:

We will now make the center part of the butterfly, its body. Cut a slightly longer piece of wire (in this case 4.5 cm).

Step 7:

Gently curl one end of the wire like the antenna of a butterfly.

Slide the beads in this string leaving a few millimeters at the end.

Step 9:

Once the beads have been slid, curl the other antenna just like the one shown in step 7 to hold the beads in the wire.

Step 10:

Shape the wire and join its two sides in an even manner.

Attach both the wings to each side of the body using the twisted wire. This is pretty simple to do, however you can choose to use a needle nose-plier to twist the wire if needed.
