I made these recently for SonjaBoo as part of the Bird, Bee, and Butterfly swap.  This is a peyote stitch honeycomb pendent I made with Delica beads - based on a Pin.  I added a couple of bead loops to the sides for jump rings, to hang off a neck wire.  More about it on my blog is anyone is interested.

I also made another version with some slightly different colours to make a brooch.  I used blue tinted beads for the wings because I felt that would make them a bit more visible than clear beads.


More about the brooch if anyone is interested...

Thank you - I was super happy because I made it all from stash - and the odd thing is normally I hate yellows, so I was surprised I had all the yellow that I had.  Makes me wonder, what project was I going to use them for originally?

Of course the reason you have so many yellow beads is that you think you hate yellow, so you never use them. This is so sweet! (Oops! Pun not intended.)

True true... I also have an unseemly amount of pink... either there is a bead fairy leaving weird colours in my stash... or I actually had them for a project that I forgot about!

Pretty!  I like both versions, though I think the necklace one is my favorite.  Cheesy
