Day 364 : Feather

Day 364 ; Feather #onebuttonaday by Gina Barrett

This is based on some Moroccan dress decorations I purchased many years ago. I've had to adapt the design somewhat so that the decoration would become a functional fastening. Although I have chosen a hook and eye - just to push the boundaries of what is or is not a 'button' - this could as easily have a tradtional knob style button in place of the hook. The wires have all been covered in rayon thread prior to forming into the shapes. It rather made me think of a peacock - but I already have a button named that!

Name: Feather
Type: Frog (hook & eye)
Materials: Rayon wrapped wire, covered ring
