Wired!!

wired buttons
At my last sales event on Camano Sunday was a little slow, so I spent the time learning how to do some cool wire weaving from my friend Kathy Dannerbeck.  Using copper wire clad in a bronze sheath she taught me to do a Viking weave, pull it through the downsizer thingy, and then open up an end to hold a vintage glass button.  These are the cool butttons I got from her last month.  They are vintage glass buttons and really very nice and sparkly. I'm still just learning but you cansee  the possiblities. Copper is neat but the bronzed wire is perfect with most of my colors.

New designs coming up for the new year!!
