Some days ago, I met a nice lady having the same addiction as me: collecting buttons!!!
I can cherish those little treasures like a child, I like the colors, textures, patterns and forms.
She had a stunning collection: horn, wooden , lucite, plastic, fabric, bakelite....all vintage!!!
She sells them (together with gorgeous fabrics) at the Flee market in Ghent and Brussels.
I found some beauties that I will use as closures for my Silk Diva necklaces, but I had also the idea to make big, bold rings with them!!
If you can't resist vintage buttons too, then go to the blog of another lovely lady, who is also a button addict (and makes stunning jewelry with it), in her blog she tells a lot about the origin of some beautiful buttons.)
