Some BatCycle Butterflies

Has anyone made a BatCycle with Butterfly or Moth elements with antennae? I would love to see that.

Also, has anyone made an all-black BatCycle?

Please email or Facebook message us your Butterfly Assembly photos, I would love to include them in a big poster-layout I’m making.

Also, I keep meaning to do more with clear beads. I just love the thread. Also, hinging with size 11 rounds is exciting. We look forward to seeing your stuff.

    Someone recently posted an all black batcycke on the “Seed Beads and More” Facebook group.

    Beautiful!!! What thread do you use with clear beads? Surely not the brown Nymo on the cone.

      Use colours!!! the brown and black look gorgeous, like spiderweb. It really makes you NOTICE how clean your stops, starts, stepups and thread changes are / can be. And any error, of course …. STANDS OUT IN BIG BOLD THREAD.

    Love the butterflies and great idea about using clear beads with other shiny or opaque beads creating the patterns shapes within.
