Version 2 of the button bracelet.

Bakelite pins for preschool teachers




Rings, hairpins and charms for nieces and little friends.

And though I'm proud of all my stuff the mother guilt is setting in. So this week is dedicated to doing some projects and adventures with the kids instead of plonking them down in front of a Disney film and running off to my workshop to inhale bead glue. Ok, that's a lie. I'll still be sniffing the glue. But I'll do it with the kids.

Lotta said...

Thanks all! I like it much better too! It was painful to cut up that bracelet after working on it for so long. But I would have been cringing when I gave it as a gift so it was best in the long run.

Lotta said...

Jenny - It's yours!

The button bracelets are MOST excellent! And you say you are not that crafty! Ha!! Now I know what I can do with the jars of buttons from my husbands grandmother ( cause I have all that free time) Either that or I can just send some to you. Have a bunch that belonged to my great-grandmother too.
