Shisha Mirrors

The next stage was adding shisha mirrors to our embroidery
This technique works just as well with buttons.

Once the buttons and mirrors were applied, I heavily embellished the area with hand embroidery.  I really do like the way it seems to grow out of the cloth.

I have lots of buttons collected over the years, I may think of a way to incorporate them into a piece of stitching.

It reminds me of a sea creature! But I like it! :0)

So unique.

I agree with Terry...very reminiscent of the sea shore. And equally beautiful. That looks like a very tricky technique, but very impressive.
