Graphic designer Eleanor Rosenberg has just been accepted in the Hot One Inch Action show on October 23 at Gallery Gachet in Vancouver. It's an exhibit of 50 artists' one-inch buttons. Opening night is a fantastically frenzied event where you can buy little baggies of buttons and trade away until you get the ones you really want.

Eleanor:  "This year I've decided to get gruesomely historical will a little Marie Antoinette piece. Mary Antoinette had a seamstress/modiste named Rose Bertin who was responsible for stealing a blue diamond necklace. The diamond necklace was terribly expensive and the cherry on top of the debt accumulated during Marie's reign which enraged the populous and egged on the revolution!

So in honour of Rose, I present the beheaded queen in a style reminiscent of ornate floral fabric. A perfect accessory for formal wear."
