Well, me too! I have been searching online for this butterfly bead and found just about every other butterfly bead except this one!! I did find it on Ebay in a piece of jewelry made by another jewelry designer...
I suppose I could try contacting that person, but I'm thinking that might be a little rude.
You might be wondering why this bead has to be EXACTLY the same. The answer is, I guess it doesn't, but for some reason it seems to have more meaning to me. I made this bracelet when I was doing a book signing at a bead store last year.
It was such a GREAT day and I was hanging out with the owner, staff and customers and one of them was making a chakra bracelet.
The theory is wearing these specific gems in this specific order can help to align your chakras.
Of course, I found it necessary to make one of my own!! Any opportunity to bead with others makes me very happy!
This bracelet has a great vibe and I would like to make more of them! I did discover that the swarovski bicones need to be switched out with real crystal gemstones, so I'm getting ready to restring this one.
So, if you happen to see this butterfly bead, please let me know!! THANK YOU!!
