Hi to all,
I really don't have a lot to say today, but I do have pictures of the pieces I worked on this week, all inspired by vintage buttons, pins and charms we sorted through a few weekends ago. This box of buttons will be an endless source of creative energy!
|Ode to a Gardener|
Ode to a Gardener is the first piece that was crafted the from those buttons. I absolutely love it! The bracelet is made of vintage buttons, pins and some beads from my stash, even a paper bead. It is a custom order and will not be posted for sale. In fact it is a gift, so if you know who it is for, don't say anything! It is supposed to be a surprise. Already, I have another bracelet fashioned from vintage buttons, crystals and earrings laid out on my studio work table. It is a real dazzler, all pearls, gold and rhinestones. Take a look on my Etsy site during the week, it will be posted soon.
|Chunky Blue Paper Bead Necklace|
This week I met with a Nature Center and visited their gift shop We discussed workshops, a possible holiday fair for local "green" artists and displaying my pieces for placement in their shop. Here is a necklace made with my vintage buttons and paper beads rolled from their Wild Life Encyclopedia destined for the trash. I made this necklace specifically for the Nature Center gift shop.
Check it out.
Talk to you soon,
