Inspired By A Swallowtail Butterfly

I'm doing a bit of work around the yard these days and I'm noticing many Swallowtail Butterflies around my flowers.  These Butterflies are so pretty!  I especially love the blue with a dab of orange along the back of the wings!

I would love to design a jewelry set in that blue!

I found these beads and shells at Fire Mountain Gems and I think the blue is quite similar (a little side note- there are 527 pages of blue beads and jewelry components.  I sipped on a coffee and relaxed while browsing):

*Beautiful Paua Shell is one of my favorites!!  The blue Swarovski Crystals are very pretty as well!

Puffy Heart Wire Work

Although I designed and made this gold heart pendant a while back, I'm taking a moment to examine my work.  I often enjoy looking at my port folio and my gallery; it helps to see where I have grown and it also is great idea for inspiration!  I don't know about you, but whenever I examine one of my older creations, it often triggers a new design.  Don't you find it amazing that our brains are designed that way?  I personally was in awe when I learned that our brain never stops expanding through new connections!

All that to say that I was examining this heart pendant and I was thinking of making a similar one with a gemstone perhaps... Have any ideas?  Please share.   Who knows maybe I'll design the heart pendant around your idea.
