Flint Necklace

The more I look at this necklace the more I feel like it’s not over. I need to go back and get into it again. I think it needs a dark thread to pull it all together and the cluster of gun metal urchins has to go to make way for more pink and red urchins. It’s also crying out for a crusting of pearls.

I need to resume scouring the charity shops for strings of pearls.

Vintage Button Brooch

This beauty of a button languished in my button jar for so long that I don’t remember where it came from! I beaded round the button, glued and stitched it onto on of the fabric covered badges that I make in front of the TV. The finished product turned out quite heavy so I’ve been wearing it on my coat and winter hats. I’m sure I have another wooden button like this one…I wonder where it is, I’d love a matchy necklace.
