My passion for jewelry started with my Mom’s button box. Whenever a garment wore out, she would remove the buttons and put them in a faded antique cookie tin. In those days, women did a lot of sewing, and those buttons came in handy. My sisters and I loved to get into that box and look at all the buttons. They were colorful little treasures to us. We each had our favorites and mine were the jewel encrusted plastic buttons that reminded me of rhinestone earrings.
That love of buttons transferred to beads when I was in my thirties. Beads have the same miniature appeal and the same variety of color and design.
I can spend literally hours surfing the internet looking at jewelry designs. Voila! Here is a blog dedicated to handmade bracelets. I thought it would be fun to feature an especially interesting or beautiful handcrafted bracelet each week and make a few brief comments about its design.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
