Day 341: Dowry Gold #onebuttonaday by Gina Barrett

Today is the feast day of St Nicholas. There are so many Christmas traditions that stem from his story that I felt I had to represent something. So, I have chosen the story of the dowry - or gold coins. There are few different stories (He may have given three coins or three bags of coins), but essentially St. Nicholas's gift-giving is at the heart of the it.

Name: Dowry Gold
Type: Thread wrapped with needlework
Materials: 30cm (No 4) MDF mould / No 8 perle cotton / Gilt tambour thread
