Handmade jewelry from a button and bead collection

   I might be more of a button and bead collector than crafter.
   Jules caught me looking at buttons at a thrift store recently. She said what I was thinking. “You don’t need anymore buttons.”
   So this morning I pulled out some wire and buttons and went to work on some handmade jewelry.
   I made a couple of wire-wrapped cuff bracelets first. The centerpiece on each bracelet is a decorative button. I then filled in each one with coordinating beads.

   I followed the bracelets with earrings. These are simple dangle earrings made from buttons and jump rings.
