Thanks to Abbie for starting this blog for all the button aficionados out there. My name is Suzy, aka GeorgiaPeachez. I am a textile artist and coveting beautiful buttons goes hand in hand with collecting beautiful vintage fabrics. I love to take those vintage fabrics and buttons and create purses, totes, aprons and jewelry.
One of my favorite ways to use beautiful vintage buttons is as jewelry. I love jewelry and I love buttons. The book Beautiful Button Jewelry by Susan Davis is a great resource book for ideas and technique.
Every year at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show this vendor, Victoria's Buttons, goes home with a big chunk of my cash because I cannot resist her creations. She has just gorgeous buttons that she has paired with swarovski crystals to create lovely earrings and necklaces.
I take pretty vintage buttons and stack them to make brooches that can we worn on my purses or on a jacket.
These beautiful items are just the tip of the iceberg of my button jewelry collection.
I would love to see your vintage button jewelry!
