For this second D and E Butterfly Blog, we’ll cover many of the Butterflies with Rhinestone Chain Outlining the Wings.
Butterfly #1: The largest of these is also the one most commonly reproduced. The ONLY one manufactured by DeLizza and Elster is this one with this exact Back construction. ALL closed back stones, Figure 8’s in the body, a support wire for the wings, a diagonally set pin back and Rhinestone Tipped Antenna. It came in many color combinations.
Butterfly #5: Another Baguette butterfly with stiff wire Rhinestone Tipped Antenna was first shared by Mr. DeLizza from his personal collection.
Butterfly #7: This smaller Butterfly is out there in many variations. The D and E version has all closed back stones except for the body navette and Scroll Curled Antenna.
On all of these butterflies it is important that the open and closed back stones be the same on the butterfly you are looking at. One back open that should be closed can be the difference between being D and E and NOT D and E.
