Buttons and beads embellishment ................on cashmere sweater

Side view

Buttons and beads on shoulder with trailing buttons and beads down the arm 
I used mother of pearl buttons and beads of various sizes - down to tiny seed beads
The design was dictated by where the moth-holes were! 
I made a fine net lining for the sleeve to support the repairs and added buttons and beads 
Hence the trailing beads snaking up the arm with an epaulette of beads on the shoulder to anchor the design

Back and back of sleeve

Well this was picked up this week and she was delighted with it!
