Thrifting Thursday 2-27-14 ~Buttons
Today's post is a short one.
Recently I went to an estate sale in my area and found these great vintage buttons.
Most of these have been used. When I net through the jar to see what there was and to clean them up 75% of them still had bits of cloth and thread still attached, so they're not pristine but definitely have that 'patina' that comes with time and use.
I was especially drawn to the simple prettiness of these great big mother of pearl buttons. I used a simple wire technique I learned from Kerry Bogart. She uses it on lamp work disks, but it also works well for these buttons and other disks that need to lay flat.
I debated whether or not to give is a bath in LOS, but decided the bright copper is lighter and more 'spring-like'.
Thanks for stopping by today.
