Buttons !!! Reveal for the Button Swap on Sunday

Sweet Bead Studio is hosting this wonderful event

I was excited to join in on this blog hop and received the most beautiful buttons from my swap partner Stacie Florer.  Here is a picture of the wonderful handmade buttons she sent me.  I have since learned that Stacie makes wonderful pieces from metal and is teaching in September at Art Bliss.  You can see more of her work on her website

I was inspired by this button swap to make these buttons for Stacie.  I have since made even more and some are in my Etsy Shop

Handmade ceramic buttons by Mary Harding (me)
These are the buttons I sent Stacie Florer  for the Button Swap

In addition to trading buttons, we are each going to make a piece, jewelry or otherwise using at least one of the buttons we received.  I have been busy with what I will be showing.  I am excited to see all the wonderful buttons and creations that will be ours for the hopping on Sunday.  Hope to see you there!!

The BeadsofClay Blog is currently posting a nice selection of handmade ceramic beads with links to where you can purchase them.  You can find that post here
