Challenge : Starry Night (Van Gogh)
This week's theme for the European Street Team's challenge is inspired by Vincent van Gogh's painting "Starry Night" and was suggested by the previous challenge winner, Star of the East. She is collecting all the entries in her blog and they will also be published in the EST blog later on.
I made this Vincent's Starry Night Cuff. Beautiful small dark blue mother of pearl buttons are knotted together to form this matlike cuff. I took the backsides of the buttons for the outside of the cuff because that rough shell structure looks very much like oil paint. Golden coloured star shank buttons are embroidered on top of the cuff to make the night starry.
