I recently visited the Baroque exhibition at the V&A and loved the baroque theatre with its moving scenery . This has of course inspired a set of buttons which are three dimensional. The first one is of the sun behind the clouds. The sun is heavily embroidered in a baroque style onto the silk but the clouds are made in needlelace and are suspended in front on little springs.

I recently discovered that earwigs have wings but never use them. They are folded up some forty times and this is suggested as a reason for them not being unfolded. I think that they are saving them for a special occasion and when that happens they will unfold their silky origami wings and wear garlands of dew drops and tiny silver and gold chrysanthemums ( their favourites) .......and here is the button proof available now on etsy !!!!
