“Each day provides its own gifts.” -Marcus Aurelius
I just whipped up a lovely necklace to give as a Christmas gift to a special friend. My inspiration came from the amazing designs of Molly Bernier from Whimsy House. Looking at her jewelry reminds me of being a kid in a candy store! These antique buttons are hard to come by, so I was lucky to get one in a grab bag of buttons from the thrift store. Score! This was so easy! 1. Break off the wire attachments on the back. 2. Use E6000 to glue on a jewelry bail (easy to find on Etsy or Ebay.) 3. Cut a ribbon or cord to length and add clasp hardware. 4. Enjoy all of the compliments you receive! I hope you’re finding time for handmade this holiday season!
