  2. aarrrrgh, got in the middle of the tut and it stopped, just when you were bending the first wire. Kind of like reading a good book and someone has ripped out a page.

  11. Yay! I love it! I can't wait to try that clasp with some of my grandma's old buttons. I might get ambitious and try a button chain for Mother's day. Thanks chica, very fun tutorial!

  17. You should do more tutorials, I loved it! This one is very timely, I just picked up a tin of old buttons at a flea market and I have a show in May. I'm gonna hop right over to my worktable and put your button chain together.

    Thanks so much,
    Angie

  18. Delightful and very informative video tutorial. Thanks so much for doing it. You have a great screen prescence!!

  19. That is a great tutorial! I watch a lot of them on youtube and downloaded video podcasts from iTunes. You have a very good style of telling and teaching, very informative, yet casual, and I agree with former speakers here, a precence, and a nice touch of humour. It all comes together being very very pleasant to watch. More please!

  27. You are so very charming.
    I think you have a whole new world opening up to you.
    (And I don't even think you need wine to do it.)
    Nicely done!
    Enjoy the day!

    you continue to make wonderful creations!

  32. A+ on your tutorial- becaaause you went at a pace I could keep up with, you showed each step, even though it may have seemed simple, it was so helpful. Most of the time I could see your hands, but maybe hold them higher next time, I don't want to miss a single thing. You also mentioned the wire source, I've been looking for! And lastly, but not leastly, you wore the perfect shirt so we could all RELATE to you! Looking forward to more!

  33. You are just the cutest! Loved it, L! You are so natural on the video! Natural conversational style and I love your sense of humor. I wish I could have the confidence to try doing a video, but I can barely take a picture of myself without gagging! Oh, well. I'll try and work on that. You did great!

  37. You are just too cute! I really enjoyed watching and you clearly had fun doing it. Thanks for sharing.

  38. Thanks for the great tutorial. I enjoyed seeing you almost "in-person"! I've made lots of button and seed bead loop clasps, but never with wire, like you did. Thanks for expanding my horizons!

  39. You crack me up with your drippy nose and I'm so not prepared statements :)

    Great tutorial and thanks so much for sharing, now I know why my attempts at using buttons were going wrong, I was faffing too much , your way is so simple I wonder why I didn't think of it myself.

  42. Great ideas, and I loved your presentation; it's nice to "meet" you! I'd love to see a resin tutorial; I've been close to getting some and trying it and seeing you do it might give me the confidence to do it.

  44. Lorelei, Once again, you amaze me! Havent processed this tutorial yet, but as you are talking and I am typing, 1 thing stands out that I want you to know, you have a lovely voice! I meant to tell you that before. Now I know how you made the button clasp on my Lorelei necklace! Any Beading companies calling yet? They should be! Great! Laura
