Last night I managed to finally make a couple of paternosters. Though not embroidery related, I think that they fit on the blog in the wider context of historical reenactment. It's little things like period accessories that really make a good set of historical garb. They are both fairly simple sets, but a good start I think.

The first one is made from black stone beads for the Aves and glass for the Gauds. They are strung on black silk twist thread. It is based on a 15th C Madonna and Child.

The second one is made with 50 small glass beads (meant to look like amber), with a bone bead. They are strung on red silk twist thread.
