It was laying next to a small bottle of buttons. I picked them both up and dropped them in my bag as I always pick up buttons. (Certainly not because I need them, I'm just unable to stop myself). When I pulled it out of the bag, I discovered it was really quite nice and decided not to get out the scissors to cut the buttons off.
This, of course, got me to thinking about button jewelry. So, I headed on over to Artfire to see what the 'button jewelry' artists were up to these days.
Well, if you want to make one of these, Beachet Crochet Designs has a PDF pattern to create a similar one. Her pattern is crochet, so perhaps mine is also, versus macrame .... I don't know.
Here a really nice variation from The Jewelry Workroom.
I really like this choker version as well from Kindred Images.
And this one, from Gregg's Goodies is marvelous. It's chunky and looks substantial, but I bet it's light as a button ....
Well, if you don't own an Button Jewelry, you might want to browse around and pick one out. Wearing it feels so marvelous unique !
