Butterfly Morpho Rhetenor


Morpho butterflies have metallic shimmering shades of blue and green on dorsal side of their wings. Such colouration is a result not of pigmentation but of iridescence. So, the colours we see vary with viewing angle, they may change from ligth cyan to deep green from pale pink to dark violet in the same place.
Thus two wings of one Morpho butterfly almost always look different.
Morpho Rhetenor inhabits South America. It is found in Surinam, French Guiana, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela. The wingpsan of this butterfly is about 14 cm.
This beaded butterfly is woven of 22 colours.

The pattern includes a photo of the finished butterfly, a palette of needed toho beads and 6 graphs, from picking the first beads up to the finished piece with showing the way of the thread in each graph. The colours in each bead are numbered for easier work. Such butterfly can be used as a brooch, a hair slide, a central part of a necklace or simply as a nice souvenir.
