I so thoroughly enjoyed this little project, I have to share.
Throughout this last summer and fall, I fell in love . . . with beads in my crochet! Here are a few of the fun things I have done that actually DID make it to my Etsy shop:
During the Holiday Season I made several items for coworkers and friends. In fact I featured a few in a previous blog post. During this time a colleague (who I will call “J”) approached me with an idea that I found very touching. And so . . . I have to share. Apparently J’s mother was quite an extraordinary lady. Without going into any details, I learned she had collected buttons over the years, and J is now in possession of said button collection. Kept neatly organized in jars. Many, many jars. Color coordinated jars. Now . . . learning this, I have become extremely envious of said button collection! Anyway . . . J has two lovely nieces. J would like to give her nieces a gift that will have sentimental value, so her idea was for me to make each girl a bracelet wrap/necklace such as the one pictured above made up of Grandmother’s Buttons! What a marvelous idea! I love it!!! Well, here they are!
If I had a nice pretty young wrist . . . I might have modeled them for you too! (wink)
