|Pictures of the insect display at the Nashville Zoo - trying to gain a bit of inspiration. It really helped to see the depth of color in the wings.|
The first thing I did was scour the internet for an image of a butterfly that I could easily trace off my laptop screen (printer on the fritz). When my boyfriend got home from work, I handed him the drawing, and after eating and relaxing for a bit he went off to his little desk and I heard the tap-tap-tap of leatherworking. A few minutes later, he brought me out a flat, naked butterfly!

I hope you all had fun following along with this process! Diana should get her bracelet in the mail tomorrow...maybe she'll post some pictures modeling it on Facebook? Please?!?!! It's so seldom that I get to see my work on the person I made it for, that I really hope she does!
PS, my boyfriend has a page for his leatherwork over on Facebook too!
