Let's start off with my favorite theme, a butterfly bead. This butterfly is drawn with its wings spanned across the front and back of the bead, with its body at the 'edge' of the bead. Actually, there's no real front or back of the bead, both sides can be used as front or back and if you look at one of the sides (see below photos), it looks like an abstract motif.

Ok, I have to be thick-skinned here, I love this below bead! It's like the closing credits of Alice in Wonderland, where the flowers grew and grew and grew!! Hey, some of us just don't want to grow up!!
