Civil War soldier who's bones were found in 2009 during road construction near the Franklin battlefield. Along with the bones were several Union buttons and a mini ball.
I decided to make a matching shawl pin from polymer clay.
I mixed some colors to match and then used techniques found in Julie Picarello's new book Patterns in Color. For the pin, I used one of my favorite Knit Picks size US0 double pointed knitting needles that one of my children sat on and broke! At least it has been put to good use.
