Birds, Buttons and other stuff...


The bird theme has been in my head for about a year...yup, I do procrastinate. I've got ideas that just take there time pushing forward thats all. Well, bird buttons and bird beads are what I've been up to as of late. I made a bunch before vacation but never had time to put them up. Yesterday the buttons sold so I made a few more... the beads are just too darn cute. I still need to clean them and then I can take their picture. Look for more Bird Buttons in my Etsy shop..

The other newish button style is my Paisley. Like it. Again, I will have these in my Etsy shop.

These beads are not all beauties but I wanted to show you my progression of a style. The top two, as you might guess, are my initial experiments. I decided I liked what came of these and then tried making them with more appealing colors....you might also notice that these beads are a spin off from my "jump rope" beads pictured on my main page of my website....

I love your bird button! Its body looks like a hand to me and has that underlying symbolism of being handmade. All your beads and buttons are special. You do a beautiful job!
