A while back I confessed to having a giant stash of socks for which I had no excuse. Today I want to show you another stash, my beloved vintage buttons. When I’m designing jewelry, it’s important to me to have a variety of styles and types of findings and embellishments. My creative juices flow best when I experiment with all kinds of colors, shapes and eras.
Many of these chunky bright colored buttons have become rings and a few others became the centerpiece for a necklace or bracelet.
I love military inspired fashion and accessories and tend to go to my brass stash when designing in that style.
Ahhh my vintage whites. Need I say more?
This is probably not even one tenth of my collection (just ‘fessing up here).
The detail in vintage buttons is amazing to me. Whether Deco chic, retro funky, or vintage sweet all can find there way into a design in my studio.
