Embroidered Handkerchief to Pendant

This gorgeous embroidery will now find a permanent home in my jewelry collection.
Ordinarily, I am a bit on the squeamish side about buying old handkerchiefs.
This one was used to showcase this pin which I did want.
Once I was home, I could see that the handkerchief had probably never been used.
Who could use it?  There is so much work here.
It was however stained with age marks, so I cut away the best part and turned it into my pendant.

I am making buttons this week, so many more examples to come.

This weeks crafty and beading links.
