Yesterday I headed out to the big local antique mall in Westmoreland, NY. They are located in a huge red barn, 2 floors of vendor booths filled to the brim with antiques, knick knacks, junk, you name it. I was on the look out for tins, lace ribbon, buttons, keys, or whatever I could find that I can re-purpose into jewelry.
The first treasure I found, was this enormous jar of buttons. It's filled, right to the top. And the kicker? It was only $7!
I took some buttons out of it yesterday afternoon and made this bracelet!
