Mother of Pearl Button Collage

This collage features a 1 1/2" Mother of Pearl button that I make at the Studio. This button features vintage Kimono fabric and then I anchored it with sequins and seed beads. I stitched a few rows around half of the button using sequins assorted beads I found at a Puce (French flea market) in Paris. To create movement in the wall-hanging I used a variety of rat-tail cords knotted, and RibbonSmyth Rococo Lace in Victorian Rose Gold.
