Cindy from www.sweetbeadstudio.com organized a button swap and I had a few buttons I could part with so I joined the group. The rules were to contact your partner and find out what types of buttons and colors they like and send out four from your collection. I was matched up with Maureen Baranov who sent me four beautiful buttons that then sat on my shelf until last night when I knew something had to be made out of them. Always working best under the wire (LOL) I hammered out the best working heart pin I have ever made. I received four buttons but only had to use one in the finished piece, since I was working on something small I decided on the one black jet glass bead with some really nice sparkle pairing it with four other much smaller beads from my collection. The finished pin is going to look great on my gray wool jacket.
