    This goes into Faves — have to steal that idea with the buttons! Hadn’t thought about using buttons like that — but of course!!

    Thanks so much, everyone!
    Have to say that I’m in love with this bird pendant!
    I did punch an extra hole at the bottom in order to hang the bead and chain dangles.

    Hi, Nancy.
    I have a few buttons from my mom’s button box (did all our mom’s have those?) However, over the past few years, I’ve started collecting buttons to used as clasps on jewelry, mostly metal ones. However, there have been a bag or container of all pink, blue, or yellow buttons that have caught my eye at a craft or fabric store that I couldn’t resist. And if it’s on sale, even better.
    They do add something special to jewelry!
