Button It


About this design:

My Mother's vintage button-box inspired this piece. The buttons are actually from her button box, which I inherited. I love it because it reminds me of her and her talent for sewing. Some buttons are almost 60 years old!

Components:

Wooden and plastic vintage buttons, amber #6 and #8 seedbeads and Nymo black thread.

    When I looked at your bracelet again the phrase, “Button button who’s got the button?” immediately came to mind. 20 years of teaching Kindergarten does strange things to the brain….. :D
