I made this for a swap partner - inspired by a craft paper project on her wist.
It's smaller than the one on her wist because I had to ship it internationally and I was 1) worried about breakage and 2) keeping shipping cost down (nothing like shipping slabs o'glass internationally!!!)
Anyway - it's dichro-slide sandwiched between thin clear on black. the sandwiching gives it some depth so they look like little butterflies on pins on a background - like the bug collector guys do.
