Button Mosaic by Ann Carrington

UK-based artist Ann Carrington uses thousands of buttons to create awe-inspiring mosaics.

Her most impressive project was the Pearly Queen of Jubilee Gardens, a mosaic made especially for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, from over 500,000 gold buttons with 31 miles of thread on a red velvet background.

Measuring 10ft by 10ft, it depicts a crown flanked by a lion and unicorn with the royal motto ‘Dieu et mon droit’ – God and my right – a design which has been approved by the College of Arms which oversees British heraldry.

Each of her creation take about 3-4 months to complete.
