Hostie box

Hostie box for the upcoming church (and the exhibition in the hall this year). Agnus Dei, Lamb of God in freshwater pearls and couched gold thread on red silk velvet. The rim of the lid has a ribbon in silk brocade in red, blue and gold thread. Inside the box is lined with blue silk.
The first attempt was an Agnus Dei made on linen, cut out and glued to the velvet. Unfortunately some of the bone glue got on the perls, and the were ruined, had to start over again, this time directly on the velvet.
