First the french knots…
I’ve focussed on finishing the top edges and am trying to reduce the amount of white at the bottom. It’s still very slow going!
And now for something completely different. I’m upcycling another damaged brooch.
Apart from the loss of one of the ribs, it’s in lovely condition.
My idea, to fill the ribs with weaving.
A nice heavy spring green perle has a lovely shine to it.
The silver metal central vein and the edges should contrast nicely with the glossy thread and a little ladybird charm will sit over the damaged area.
