I've gone a little nuts lately with the acquisition of some ceramic buttons to my collection. I can't help it! They are so versatile, and there are some really super talented ceramic artisans out there making them. No, I'm not using them on hand-knit sweaters, or handmade bags. I'm using them in jewelry and it's a blast!
I contacted LeAnn of SummersStudio Etc. a few weeks ago about making me some buttons and in return, LeAnn wanted a cuff bracelet using one of her pieces. LeAnn sent me some gorgeous buttons. The details on each one, and the beautiful Summery colors- I'm in heaven!
So I sat down and made LeAnn's bracelet using this Yellow sunflowery type button, some wood cuff beads, and Ceramic Mykonos beads in cream, brown and coppery pink. I like how the Mykonos beads spin as you stretch it over your hand
I also discovered another ceramic artisan on Etsy. Leaves of Clay! What's not to like about leaf impressions on a clay button! GORGEOUS! And so earthy, and right up my alley really. So I ordered a few from Michele, and they arrived this week.
I'm getting ready to head to Albany today. BEAD EXPO HERE I COME!!
I've got cash in hand, and a mental shopping list, and I'm praying I don't spend all my cash at the Green Girl Studios booth. ;)
