My mum works in a school and so she is currently on her long holiday break.
Here's what she has been doing with her time.
Making these lovely broach bouquets!
Each bouquet is made from buttons broaches and beads all strung on wires making a shaped framework which is held together making the handle of the piece. She has made 4 colour schemes so far a brown/gold/sepia one, a cream/silver and gold one, a brighter turquoise/green/blue, and a much larger black and silver version.
The larger one is currently listed on Etsy:
