Something for me...
It's almost never that I make beads for myself, although I will admit to adopting some pieces that have lingered in my shop just long enough to capture my affection. But the other day I did just that, and also addressed a task that's been nagging at me every time I've sat down to make beads.
Last fall (two falls ago? where does the time go?) I snagged a bargain sweater in a lovely dark grey and great knitted stitches at Marshall's for only $15, but it was missing two buttons. The remaining buttons were large, and I thought I'd just replace the two that were missing with some nifty glass buttons. Tick tock, tick tock, and no sweater buttons came out of my kiln for at least a year.
Fast forward to Sunday, when I deliberately put that sweater right next to me at the torch as a reminder. I got 'er done, as they say, and here are the results. I'm thinking I'll probably make 3 more and replace all of the original buttons. What do you think?
