The Lace Fan

This is my first attempt at making a lace fan. I used approximately 80 pairs of bobbins and it was completed using special dentelles thread #80 in black and has shiny black seed beads throughout. It has been mounted on a lilac shantung silk. I borrowed most of the bobbins and the pillow from my lacemaking teacher and if I recall correctly, it took around 6 months to complete.
