... buttons in flight (again)

... and the re-write! Some of you know that I am taking part a button swap organised by the highly efficient Cindy Wimmer! My button buddy is none other than Lorelei Eurto. We paired up, discussed our likes and dislikes and swapped our buttons. My package arrived yesterday, beautifully packed and wrapped  ....
... personalised tags - nice!

... the surprise element - thank Lorelei! I've been wearing them all day!

... the button stash!
  Using buttons as part of my jewellery making repertoire is not normally my thing so creating something using these lovelies will really be pushing my envelope! I love the mix I have to work with though! Those super cute little shanked oranges ones in the corner are earmarked for project #1. Show and tell day is fast approaching and scheduled for Mother's Day - May 13th!

 Before I go, I wanted to share with you a new collaborative blog art jewelry elements that features some very creative artisans. I looking forward to following this journal as I am a huge fan of several of the contributors. Head over and have a look for yourself! They are currently having a book give-away...
Hope you've had a fabulous day!
