Queen's Baton

I was asked to frame this replica baton along with other memorabilia from the day.
All done by hand.
Apologies for the photo quality.

The baton was fairly easy to attach because of the design. I used wire looped around a bit at the back on either side, passed through the mountboard and a piece of mdf for rigidity, then twisted together.
It's almost impossible to see.
