Vintage Button

Yesterday at our Bead Society Meeting we learned how to make this lovely fan wrapped bracelet. The supply list called for size #1 bugles. I used size #5 twist Matte Khaki Iris which really fanned out nicely. The bugles were purchased from Bead Stuff. The button I used was a gift from my friend Judith that she sent in care package after Katrina (2005). I have this uncanny ability to remember where all my beads were purchased or who they were gifted by. Now if I could just remember my pin number and where I put my glasses!!

That is a pretty bracelet. I can see how it could make a pretty necklace too. Wish I could have gone to your meeting and learned that one. It is really nice

This is lovely and works so well as a whole. I love the button. I collect buttons and love to go button hunting at flea markets and antique shops.
