I made a broach from a nice bit of wood I found and a ceramic face. I dyed the wood black with ink, scraping back some of the wood to expose the lighter wood underneath.
While trying to find a bead or something to give it a little umph I came across a dead ladybird in my bead box. So she now adorns the broach, covered in a protective coating to harden her up and hopefully last longer. The bead hanging at the bottom is actually an old button I nicked from either my dads or my granny Berties button jar. It sits nicely on my comfy Louise Bourgeois Coat.
