more vintage buttons

I strung some beads and used more of the vintage buttons to make a necklace.

The glass buttons are hard to find. They are my favorites.  There is a tiny sweet pink button attached to the end by the key. And two tiny ivory buttons, the old threads still attached.

I love making stuff with these charming old buttons.

This necklace is absolutely beautiful! I would have never thought to use vintage buttons this way. Thanks for sharing your idea!

I do like those pieces-they have a really elegant yet funky feel to them.

The header looks great too. I like this one best so far, not only for the subject but for the size too. Seems just right:)
