"Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it turned into a butterfly"

Every time my eyes dance across that quote, I am struck by the potential it reveals. Of what could be forged by myself and anyone reading this. And that our trials ask us to access the Herculean type strength we were born with to morph into a better version of ourselves.

I chose butterflies as the inspiration for this challenge for that reason.

That and they're pretty ;)

And I have a butterfly with the face of a tiger in its wings tattooed on my back.

>>What's an Exhibition Challenge?

Well, I made it up. I wanted to create a safe space for creative expression with beads- no voting, no winners, no prizes. We will celebrate creativity and beading as an art form, and I am excited to promote you and your work!

There are only 10 kits available. Participants must use something from the kit in their beadwork and incorporate beadweaving techniques. Beads from your stash can be included. I will be showcasing each piece on BeadCircle.com along with the artist’s name, story of their piece, and website. Photos of your piece must be submitted to mandibeads [!at] gmail.com by September 15, 2014 be included in the big reveal exhibition.

>>Ideas for using the inspiration

You can interpret the theme literally or not. You can get ideas from the quote, from the movement of a butterfly, a memory they remind you of, even something the queen of butterflies might wear. Think of words that you associate with butterflies, and create a piece that reflects those words: whimsical, free, transformation, metamorphosis, ballerinas of the animal kingdom, serene, graceful, energy, and ease.

Most importantly, stretch, play, and have fun!
