I quickly signed up and awaited to see who my partner may be...did I get lucky!
I was paired with Jenna Meyers of Honey Bijou! I could not wait to see what she created and sent! You will definitely want to visit her etsy store here! She creates great beads and jewelry!
Here is what I received and so quick too!! She even made the card they came on!!
I sat it out where I could see it daily and stared at it...I was right in the middle of sitting up a workspace, so I knew it would be a few weeks before I could dig in...
I have been seeing lots of these bangle type bracelets being made and I wanted to make some with Jenna's buttons!
I picked up this thick wax vintage linen at a recent Junk Show that I went to so I could get started on my bracelets...
That face button just seemed so earthy to me, that picked out earth tone czech glass beads to use. Since this button was larger, I picked out some larger beads.
Then I moved onto the blue and tan button with stars and picked out some smaller denim and brown colored firepolished czech glass beads....
Last, I pulled out some thinner waxed linen and knotted together some of my medium sized mother of pearl buttons and used the vintage button she sent as the clasp. You can see that above as well.
I am super pleased at what I made, learned a new bracelet to make, and will be a new customer with Jeanna!
Thank you, Jeanna, for what you sent!! I loved participating in this blog hop!! :) Please check out all the other ones participating too!
