Welcome back, Beadphoria friends! Today we bring you our monthly participation in the Designer Crafts Connection Blog Hop. The theme for this month is “Wishes”.

This month is also Mother’s Day. A beautiful way to “wish” a happy Mother’s Day to the special woman is your life is with this gorgeous “Butterfly Wishes” Necklace.

Butterfly Wishes

Butterfly Wishes Necklace by Suzann Sladcik Wilson

I designed the butterfly pendent in the center of the necklace by stamping the word “wishes” using the “Bridgette” lowercase metal stamps from ImpressArt. At the end of the word, I decided to add an extra wish by stamping another butterfly using the ImpressArt stamp Butterfly Swirl #2.

While I was researching Butterflies and Wishes, I wanted to share a couple of legends that I discovered. These would be great to include in a Mother’s Day card, or to accompany the necklace at anytime.

The first is from the Native Americans.

An American Indian Legend

Native American Legend about butterflies and wishes.

Another sentiment was a blessing that would work nicely.

An Irish Blessing

May the winds of the butterfly kiss the sun.

And find your shoulder to light on.

To bring you luck, happiness and riches.

Today, tomorrow and beyond.
