return of the blue button charm bracelet (again) and spring fun

The blue button charm bracelet is back again! I feel like I need to keep making these since I've sold three of them and given one as a gift that was very well received. Here's the new one:

My Awesome Chicks of Etsy Spring Challenge entry is listed on the Awesome Chicks blog now. You can see the entry by clicking here. You can also view a bigger shot of the bracelet on my flickr photostream. This was the bracelet that I mentioned previously that I don't think I'll be able to part with. After I finished it, I had a beautiful mix of Czech seed beads left. I added some purple beads and made this piece:

I am still open to button exchanging if anyone is interested! I sent a little bundle off to KreatedbyKelly today and am looking forward to my exchange package from her in the mail soon. Please let me know if you want a package heading your way, too.

I have a couple more new pieces finished but not photographed yet. Hopefully I will have them listed within the next week or so.


  1. Love the button bracelet!!! I've got my grandmothers button jar, which has some fabulous buttons inside, and have used a few of them in some of my pieces, mostly as the closure in some of the little needle felted purses I've made, but a few jewelry pieces too. A charm bracelet is such a great idea, especially since it contains buttons from my mother's, and my, childhood.

  2. Very cool! It's always neat to find someone else who enjoys buttons, too. :)

  3. I really like the green one!

  4. I love the bracelet. My kids think I'm crazy because I keep a tin of buttons with no apparent use. Maybe someday I'll make a bracelet too.

  5. You totally should, Kate! Thanks, Jo! :)

  6. I love the bracelet.
