Parnassius nomion, the Nomion Apollo, a forest steppe butterfly, is found in the Urals, Altai, south Siberia, Amur and the Ussuri region, Mongolia, China and Korea.
Its wingspan is about 80 mm.
To weave this butterfly we’ll need fireline, a beading needle size 11-15 and 6 colours of beads (two toho palettes are given: a metal-lined beads palette and an opaque beads palette). The pattern includes a photo of two finished butterflies (the one made of metal-lined beads and the opaque one)and 2 graphs of weaving of the insect. The thread way is shown.
Such butterfly can be used as a pendant, or a brooch, a hairslide, an earring. The butterfly is quickly and easily woven. It'll take you about an hour or a bit more to be completed.
This butterfly pattern is a part the collection "18 Mini Butterflies and Moths of the World".
