Diva's Challenge #317: Photo Tangles

The Diva came up with a unique, really different idea for 
this week's challenge: use an image as the string, and
 tangle around it. You can use a photo, or a copy of a photo, 
or an image that you find on the Web or in a magazine.

Since I love butterflies (hence the name of my blog, and 
my studio) I was going to use a picture of a butterfly; 
a real butterfly. But then I thought, better still would be a 
picture of one of my glass butterfly beads. In my other life,
 I'm a glass worker, specifically a glass beadmaker. I make 
glass beads to be used as the focal points of jewelry; 
and of course have many pictures of them.

So I cut out a picture of one of my butterfly beads, glued
it on a tile, and tangled around it. And here it is:
I'm happy with it, although the glass probably 
doesn't show up as well as I'd like.

Be sure to visit the Diva's site to see the other wonderful entries; it's amazing how different all the responses are. Maybe you'll be inspired to try out one of the Challenges yourself.
