EST challenge and Monday Moodboard

This is my entry for this week's European Street Team challenge which involved using a button somewhere in the design.

Lavender and cream pendant. corsage or hair ornament.
This is made from vintage lace, lavender broderie anglaise wired ribbon, hand painted silk, a vintage button and a pearl bead. It can be worn as a pendant using the ribbon or could have a brooch clip or barette added. More details

Monday Moodboard
All these pieces from my European team friends have lovely textural effects and are made from natural fibres of wool, cotton and linen with other embellishments added.
