Byzee Beez to Butterflies
Article © MAIL User: MaxumX

This is a tutorial to show how to make one of my favorite weaves, Byzee Beez to Butterflies, made upon request and in a hurry. So here it is quick and dirty. Ring size used for this tutorial: 20g (.030) 1/8(.125) ID, you can also use 9/64 (.140)for a larger look and you can double the center ring without having to rely on the spring back.

Step One: Open six rings and close six rings.
