Beads and buttons

I really didn’t spend very much money at MQX last week, but what I did do was to splurge on some jewelry:

As with a lot of things, this is so much prettier in real life.  I wonder if taking a picture of it on a dark background would be better?  Or maybe seeing what it looks like on me would be better?

And this one (which has matching earrings):


And some buttons:


There are actually 8 of those gorgeous handmade glass button.  Haven’t got the slightest clue as to what I’m going to do with them, but I’ll have to find something now, won’t I?

I got all of this pretty stuff from a place called We Got the Buttons

You should go visit her website — she has some interesting information about how she actually makes the buttons.

There aren’t actually any buttons for sale on her website — the best way to use her gorgeous buttons is to ask her to make CUSTOM buttons.  Send her a swatch of your fabric, tell her what size, shape and color, and she’ll make buttons to match!

I have some work to do today, but I’m also bound and determined to finish the pebbling on the red wholecloth.

First stop, though, is a trip the cough syrup bottle.  I’m feeling better, but I’m hearing horror stories from people that this crud lasts weeks.  Ugh.

More later!

    I am going to go out right now and buy more cross stitching stuff then blame it on you. sounds fair that you should blame the beads on me!

    Love the necklaces. Both of them are perfect coloring for you and I bet they look great! I second the recommendation to buy the buttons. She had an awesome selection of glass buttons.
