BUTTONS AND BEADS


I inherited my mother's button box many years ago along with her extensive collection of bead necklaces.  As a child I always loved looking through the button box although my mother wouldn't let me play with the necklaces!  I felt it was time to do something with them - so decided to make a picture.  My first attempt was a cockerel - some of these buttons will be at least 60 years old - hope my mother would approve!!
