A few years ago at the Sewing and Needlecraft show at the Fairgrounds I purchased this set of antique buttons and attached them to a bracelet. I wonder how great the craftsman's eye sight must have been to make them, I believe they are 19th. century and I think they are what is called "steel cut" but I know little about them and I welcome any further information.
I am very fond of it, I think the buttons are quite beautiful, if you zoom in you will see the detail on them is exquisite and they are only a half inch in diameter. Very sadly one of the buttons has been lost so recently I have been searching for a replacement, mostly through eBay. To date I have not been successful so if any of you eagle eyed blogging VTT'ers come across such a button would you please let me know!
This sewing show is due in Phx. again the end of the month so I think I will go just on the off-chance that this vendor or one like them may be there.
Now surf on over to Colorado Lady's blog to find the rest of the VTT participants.
PS my finger is OK, still tender but looks as if it will heal up nicely, PTL!
