Beading4Perfectionists does some really lovely beadwork video tutorials. I particularly like this unusual Swarovski crystal butterfly bracelet tutorial. It features bicones and the use of curved connectors to help form the butterfly.

Don't worry if you are having trouble trying to get the same connectors as in the video tutorial. She's also uploaded another video tutorial on how to make the butterfly connections with seed beads! It is a little tricky as you will be working with 4 threads!

Also consider making the connectors yourself out of wire.  You could hammer flat a very thick wire length and punch 2 holes at either end.  File to round the ends off. Bend it slightly and you've got yourself a connector.
