7000 Bracelets For Hope Blog Hop

Lori Anderson of Pretty Things, also known as the Queen of Bead Soup Blog Party :-), is hosting a 7000 Bracelets For Hope blog hop.  I have made one bracelet already, but I am always game for a fun blog hop – especially one with such a worthy cause.  I made a lampwork bracelet last time, so I decided to do something different.  The Button Swap is soon approaching, and with that in mind, I hit my button stash, and came up with this:

I combined some contemporary buttons with some vintage glass ones and added swarovski crystals &  pearls.  The main buttons are a very pretty soft blue with recessed ivory flowers.   This is really one of the very first bracelets that I made that have glued on components – I hope the E-6000 glue has staying power…
