This stamped butterfly on canvas pendant tutorial by Shona Cole in soft colors. The fabric layers are stiffened by gluing onto a plastic backing.
There are other ways to stiffen the fabric - perhaps with a heavy interfacing? If hot gluing to the chain does not appeal, consider adding some grommets at the wing tips for jump rings.
Beverly over at the Flamingo Toes blog took her inspiration from an Anthropology necklace. The butterfly focal was created using a variety of eyepins. What is neat is the use of ribbon to outline the butterfly. I also liked not just the asymmetrical placement but the inspiring use of different beaded sections.
