I believe I have neglected to recognize publicly the inspiration for my butterfly cane beads my friend Cat! Click here---> C. A. Therien
I had tried some butterfly canes before, with mixed success. One turned out fantastic, and the rest were just not what I'd hoped. I kind of pushed that goal to the side, but when I saw Cat's tutorial in Bead Unique magazine, I bought the magazine and decided to give it another try.
I am very contrary, and tend to look at instructions as suggestions. (Not so good when putting together furniture, by the way) I was able to follow MOST of what she said to do, with my own modifications. But I would not have even attempted it, had I not had the article to get me moving.
I made a blue butterfly cane, and then a monarch cane. After that, I made a translucent cane. So. Thank you, Cat!! You are a good friend, and a wonderful teacher.
