thanks!  and I wish I had more of those danglies.  I mean, I have more, but they're in different colors.  I only had 3 crystals, and all 3 are used up, so I'll have to hunt for more when I go to make something else.  but I think they add this kinda...Victorian(?) feel.  like they came from an old Victorian-style crystal chandelier.  Smiley

thank you!  the seed beads are Delicas in color-lined mix metallic.  so you get the copper, gold, silver, etc.  I thought they would be fun to use to decorate the butterfly.  Grin

and, I'm stupid.  lol.  I found more of those "crystals" last night while I was looking around for parts for a pendant I was making.  I feel so smart sometimes.  Roll Eyes

lol.  it's easy for projects to get lost in the mix.  Wink

and thank you!.  I find myself looking at it once in a while too.  partially because it's so pretty, and partially because I'm hoping it will give me a clue as to how to make use of the oval perforated discs I have.  so far nothing...maybe.  artista83 may have sparked an idea.  Grin
