There is a happy sensory feeling about putting your hand in a jar of vintage buttons, collected one by one over the years by a loving mother of a large family doing her part conserving for her family. Often there will be shreds of thread or even swatches of fabric attached… If only the buttons could share the stories of the sweet children playing by the stream or Grandmas loving hands baking bread.
As I create with vintage joy, I often wonder about the story of each element that I create with.
This necklace includes vintage buttons, a crystal, pearl and beautiful rose carved bead swirled with wire and finished with a remnant of ribbon.
Do you have special mementos from your family history that you treasure?
Have an amazing day! 🙂 Kris
