Hundreds of beads!

I have been making Jane's Starry Button Bracelets  and each one literally uses over 300 beads!  Incredible but the effect is always stunning.  So here are some pictures.



For this bracelet I used slightly larger buttons and increased the stitch count


And this is a banner that I have made for the forthcoming exhibition, hopefully it will hang outside the church to attract people to come inside and view the exhibits.


The pictures you see above it are Batik from Indonesia and I cut the letters out using material from Africa and Indonesia as well as England.   Actually it looks rather fun hanging in my home!
