Next to her hats, Buffalo's needlelace masks are her most popular item, perfect for Halloween, Mardi Gras or fancy masked balls. They are watercolor paintings rendered in thread. Needlelace is a form of embroidered lace that dates back to the pre-Christian era. Buffalo uses wire as a framework for the masks, but she also makes freeform lace pieces as hat veils and inserts for clothing. See the lace gallery for other examples, including a lace corset and Elizabethan collar.
