Button, Button


I love layers. Layering ceramic discs, and vintage buttons. I also love the texture that is added to a piece using waxed linen cording. This new necklace features a new technique using jump rings, layered discs/buttons and waxed linen cording. When I started making this piece, it first wanted to be a necklace, then it insisted on being a bracelet, and then it became both.




At 23" long it can wrap 3 times around my 7 inch wrist. But looks really cool as a simple necklace too. I find that the discs lay nicely when worn to one side.








It's available for sale here.

  4. Buttons are so humble but can be so beautiful. You made a gorgeous piece that honors the past but is very contemporary. Love it!
