Free Lace Butterfly

Hi ... A friend asked me about Jana Novak and the type of lace she does... so I dug out this butterfly which I made in Jana's 1996 AGM workshop in Melbourne ... it was the first AGM week I ever went to! It's made with Moravia Linen thread in several shades of blue and yellow and I wound "Kreinik blending filament" with some of the pairs...I enjoyed the free lace workshop and I designed and made 2 necklaces and a pair of earrings to match (the earrings match both ... one necklace is longish the other more like a choker) There are lots more beads on the Jewellery though than this butterfly.... There were lots of stitch and techniques tips in this workshop ... alot of which I still use!
