{new} button button bracelet

January 20th | blog friends, jewelry

i am so excited about this little bracelet. the buttons are so cute i can hardly stand it! and i love that buttons represent a connection, keeping something in place. isn’t that perfect?!

i have two good friends who spend a lot of their time sewing. you might know these amazing ladies. maggie {here} from gussy who stitches up a mean ruffle and my sweet lindsey {here} from the pleated poppy who makes posie pins and scarves and so many beautiful things! you’ll spot a bracelet for each of them in these pics. i think this is a perfect bracelet for someone who sews or is creative. so sweet!

you can see more details about the button button bracelet HERE.

my grandma collected buttons and passed on her sweet collection to her daughters and granddaughters. do you love buttons like i do? what do you do with all those little extra buttons that come with clothing?

  3. LISA!!!! This is TOO much … I *heart* it so. This is going right to the top of my wish list! And thinking up words to add to the charms … maybe, sew, snip, gather, knitty, bitties …

    Absolutely FABULOUS! I just love it! I’ll be brainstorming the perfect words for my bracelet the rest of the day :)!!!

  5. Lisa! I have a LLD gift card, I got it from a generous girlfriend! Might have to use it on this bracelet.
    Sooo cute.
    You, your designs, your blog, your family……it is all soooo inspirational! Thank you!

    Growing up my mom had a box with extra buttons. And now that I’m have a home of my own I keep my extras in an old tin. When I have to get it out to sew a button on, my daughter sits with me and looks at all interesting buttons we have.
    Love to read about you and your family everyday.
    Take care of each other. Prayers always for the little guy.

    You are so creative! I love it. I’m completely enjoying my Daisy Chain bracelet – – so pretty! Love this new one with the sweet buttons.

  8. Lovely! I know that Maggie and Lindsey will be so excited!

  9. Buttons are so super cool and you can do anything with them. I throw my buttons in a mason jar and post them around my house to look at.

    I have lots of buttons. My neighbor gave me a jar of her mom’s old buttons . I made her a little quilt and put some of her buttons on it. She loved it. I also love the button bracelet.

  12. so fun!! lola would simply drool over that bracelet if i let her see it. oh my gosh, i can just see her in a little necklace with a button charm! she is obsessed with buttons. i have a tupperware of buttons i keep for sewing or craft projects, and one of her favorite things to do is sit down at the table with it and dump out all the buttons, sort through them, talk to them, rearrange them, tell me about every single one of them, and then put them all back away. anything that she spies that is round is called a button. stickers, cheerios, money. they are all buttons. buttons make her day a very happy one.

    It’s darling. You’re awesome.

    Of course it’s darling EVERYTHING you do is darling. This is really cute and the perspective on the models’ wrists helps show scale. Another precious piece for my wish list. :sigh:

    I love this! Growing up, my mom kept a big mason jar filled with buttons. I used to pick it up and stare at it, shake it, draw it. That little jar full of so much wonder.

    I love the bracelet, my question is that I am big boned and many bracelet do not fit comfortably on me. Does this one come in different sizes

  21. mary says:

    oh those buttons are absolutely adorable.
    my mom was the seamstress in our family.
    i wish i could sew! i could always just fake it and wear this instead. : )

  22. kristyn says:

    LOVE your new creation!!
    I wish I could afford to purchase each and every one of your designs. I would have SO much fun wearing them and sharing them. *I had one of your necklaces on today.*

  23. Claudine says:

    This is simply darling! As a sewer I totally dig the button idea!

  24. Wendy Orme says:

    I use extra buttons on my scrapbook pages and cards and…I LOVE this bracelet! Sew cute!

  25. Oh, so cute! Buttons are lots of fun. I have a box with a bunch of them, but I always love adding to my collection – I use them for my sewing projects, usually to add just the right embellished touch.

    I love Maggie’s bracelet! My mama had a huge tin of buttons that I loved. They were my grandmother’s who gave them to my mom. Somehow over the years of moving, etc, the tin has disappeared. I miss running my fingers through all those unusual buttons. I’m hoping they will turn up one day…

  27. Terra Sapp says:

    My mom and I love buttons-she has a whole post about white oyster buttons that she has collected for over 30 years and I love your bracelet! I have the family tree necklace from last year, but have a new baby boy…so I will have to get a new one! ; ) I wear it all the time in 10 inches of snow Missouri and my gal friends l.o.v.e. it!

  28. Susan Miller says:

    I am also a button lover. I have way more than I will ever need. I especially love just seeing them, so I keep some small ones in glass tubes….they once held cigars!
    Your bracelet is fabulous and I am really in love with the mason jar necklace! I am saving my pennies!

    buttons, buttons and more buttons I need them all!!!! I have most of them in 2 plastic cake savers. I know this is not pretty but I am messing with my buttons so much they have to be handy. Every single craft project I do has buttons on it. I make Vintage jewerly so buttons are a big part of my life with that. For decor I have a cute little cake stand with a glass lid and a small bird inside, his nest is a colection of small cream buttons, I wish I could send a picture.

  30. Kristina says:

    Oh, man! I was so wanting the daisy chain bracelet but now I want this one. Which to pick?!

  31. Phoebe says:

    Seeing your amazing new bracelet reminded me of this organisation http://www.buttonsproject.org whose founder recently spoke at a childrens ministry conference. A powerful use of a button as a symbol of closure. Thought you may like to take a peek.

  32. Lisa, I’m sure you hear this all the time but I just had to tell you how wonderful your jewelry and ‘other goodies’ are! You have such an amazing talent. I saw a link to your website on Funky Junk interiors and even though I don’t need any gifts right now I bookmarked your site for later! Everything is just gorgeous! Love your blog as well :)
