New Designs-Brucemore Bound

These are two new necklace designs featuring metal zippers and antique buttons.  Both necklaces are long and have a nice weight to them.  Many of the buttons are of rare celluloid composition. ( I also love the sound they create!)
My Goddess Pin is Brucemore Bound...
The Brucemore Art and Garden Show is this Saturday August 25 9am-4pm.

Zipper Teeth Embroidered Cuff

Here are two different color combinations of a class I am teaching at the Bead and Button Show this June. They are made out of metal zipper teeth and various glass seed beads---also some cabochons and/or sequins for additional embellishment. There are still 5 spaces available in this 3 hour class (B121695) if you are interested-I'd love to share my technique with you! Click on the photo if you'd like a closer look. (My other class-which is an all day class also featuring metal zipper teeth is currently sold out.)
