When we were in London over the Christmas break, our lovely friend Bec gave me a very special gift. It literally took my breath away. I kept looking at it, convinced that I'd never seen anything so exquisite. Above is this special piece... a bracelet made from about 50 covered buttons, meticulously fashioned together with black wire. It is indeed a most wonderful thing :) Bec also gave my daughters a fabulous knitting kit each to make themselves a 'slouch hat' (photos below). Bec bought all of these wondrous things from a friend of hers in London and her name is Fiona Bailey. Have you come across her work before? She has a fab blog and I believe she's recently opened her own Etsy store.
Love the jewellry!
Love that style 'beanie' & the colour. What a lovely find. The fabric covered button bracelette is incredible, how great is that!! Love Posie

Hmmm, maybe I could "borrow" this idea to use up some of the boxes of buttons I found at my mother's house. I was wondering what to do with them all.
