Button Thursday : Victorian Button Bracelets

I am going to make each Thursday a BUTTON DAY on my blog. I will write about a button or a button-related item / event and will show some great pics. It would be great if you could do the same. Have you seen a lovely, beautiful, stunning, crazy button or button-related thingy, blog about it on your blog on Thursday, and give the link here (via Mister Linky at the bottom of this blog).

My Thursday button is my series of Victorian button bracelets, also to be used as necklaces. I started to make these as a not so broad alternative for my button cuffs. Thinking of the closure I thought it had to be something tender, not so bold as with the cuffs. Then I came up with this idea of weaving a velvet ribbon through the openings between the buttons, and tie it in a bow. So, the Victorian button bracelet / choker was born.

I make them also from very small buttons, and with lace ribbon, which makes it even more delicate and "Victorian". For sale in my etsy shop P8 Button Art & Accessories

!!!!!!!!!! Because of widespread demand The Button Thursday will be shifted to Button Wednesday from next week !!!!!!!!!!!!!
