I listed this corn necklace today. The pendant is made of a vintage copper corn ear button. How fab is that? The shank had been cut out of the button before I got it, so I set it on this antiqued setting, and it turned out great. I just read an article about never ever cutting the shank off a vintage button, so I promise to never do that. But this necklace just looks like fall and harvesting.
And then there's this yummy black glass cab button that dates at least pre-1920's. It looks Victorian to me, and it turned into this great, dark, sort of goth bracelet. It may have been a closure on some delightful formal suit or gown. Who knows what sort of events it attended?
Ah, the allure of vintage. I made need a twelve-step program.
