Early in the summer, I got to go out junking with my favorite cousin. My biggest score for the trip was a jar full of brightly colored (mostly plastic) buttons. If you are going to work with plastic, it needs to be BRIGHT, or else hey, why bother? :-) I also bought the vintage enameled pin since it had the right colors to match some of the more gaudy buttons. I rarely work in true yellow and orange, so this piece was a challenge. What do you think of the name? Is it too obvious?
If you'd like to share your best find from the summer, just send me an email with your story and any image you'd like to share, plus a link to your site or blog, and I'll post it here :-) Email cyndi @ mazeltovjewelry.com (remove the spaces) with the subject line "my best find".
