China buttons from a Flea Market in Maine
I want to thank all of you who commented and wrote to me about my vacation happenings. So nice to hear from all of you and to hear that I was missed.
I have several pics for my BeadTable Wednesday. Some fun things I picked up in Maine at a cool Flea
These are some "china buttons" which I think means porcelain buttons that I found at the Maine flea market. I also found this set of quite small antique Victorian buttons. They all seem to have leaves and flowers. I love to use these on my free form peyote stitch bracelets. The porcelain ones I don't know what I will do with them but since I love to wire wrap I am looking forward to seeing where that will take me with them.

the set is totally gorgeous (click the link above to see it all)
peyote stitch bracelet with my handmade copper button--just finished this and wanted show it off
the clasp is also a button I made, just much smaller and sewn on like a button
this button which is in front is slightly domed so it has some slight movement which is fun
I am keeping this one for myself for now. It is fun to wear. I will probably part with it when the Studio Tour comes in November.
