who needs a paperclip?

Did I say it before? I love butterflies! I still have a lot of bugle beads, only 10 are needed for this one-shuttle pattern:
(BB = bugle bead)
Six rings: (NOTE all bugle beads are in the core thread, so not in the ring's loop, they slide in place from the shuttle)
R1: 1-1 BB 6-1 BB 1;
R2: 1 BB 1 +(join to R1) 6 BB 6 BB 1;
R3: 3--(long picot)3 ;
R4: 1 BB 6 BB 6-1 BB 1;
R5: 1 BB 1 +(join to R4) 6 BB 1; Join to first picot in R1
R6: 6, close, tie and cut the thread.

I cut the long picot for antennas and inserted the paperclip in R6 and R3 rings.

Simple rings can do magic sometimes, isn't it?
I'm not sure I need many paperclips, but they are fast and easy. Don't worry, they can't fly away, exept those that have already been "kidnapped" by my mum!

Ciao,
