Did your mom or grandmother have a button box or tin that you just loved to play in? My mom did. I spent hours sorting and stringing all the little lovelies throughout my childhood.
One of my daughters inherited my mom’s tin of buttons. This morning I made her this necklace with some of the pearly ones. It’s strung on a caramel colored waxy genya cord. I added a few neutral colored seed beads here and there for color and interest. It has a nice weight to it and hangs nicely when worn. A great tutorial that explains how to make this necklace is at Craftwerk.
My daughter loves it.
