It's a mess right ? No order at all really which makes it difficult to access and use all those pretties! Well, it has been a goodly while since I have made any colourful button jewellery and I was in the mood ... So, I bit the bullet and sorted my stash!
I have to admit, it took a bit of courage to tip them out on the table but with the help of my trusty weird-arse divided microwave trays, I made great progress - fairly quickly. And the effort was sooooooo worth the result!
They look great now - and are so easy to find. Oh - and they take up much less space in the studio. I still have to sort the metallic buttons and the mother-of-pearl buttons into containers. This process has also reminded me that there is an AWFUL lot of white buttons in the world and I seem to have garnered more than my fair share of them . Still, after the apocalyptic clean-up I felt quite inspired. Here are some of the pieces I put together ...
After all this, I feel I will sleep the sleep of the righteous and tidy - don't you?!
