In A Heartbeat...

This beautiful red glass bracelet sold so fast, I barely had time to turn around. I should have known it would immediately speak to my good friend Bj, who works closely with the WomenHeart Coalition.

Vintage molded glass buttons from the early 20th century… with one dazzling little red glass faceted rhinestone mixed in. This one took my heart and left me breathless, too!

The Adornment of Wrists

I can't stop making button bracelets. I adore them! I love wearing them almost as much as I love making them. There is something wonderful about a lovely piece of jewelry that you can look at while you're wearing it, without needing a mirror. Having something shiny around my wrist is just exactly the perfect thing. Here are a few recent delights, some of which are still listed in my Etsy shop.
This one surprised me by becoming my favorite, despite the fact that I never wear yellow!
That one gorgeous Victorian faceted steel button takes my heart!
Dramatic, sexy, elegant, classic. 
What's not to love about black glass plus rhinestones?
SO loved this collection of green gems!
Someday, I'll need to hire a fresh young wrist to model these bracelets.
More black beauties!
Open sesame! This should do the trick.

A Little Deliciousness

Some things are small and delicate… and yummy. This is another crocheted loop and toggle bracelet made with vintage buttons. Some are gorgeously detailed brass colored metal and some are molded glass that is the color of amber. So sweet!
These buttons are at least 100 years old.
More precious than silly old diamonds.
The toggle button has a nature scene with flying bird.
Simple, unique and easy to wear.
