I must begin by saying I love glass – art glass, glass sculptures, functional glassware. I’m fascinated by all that stuff. Those Dale Chihuly sculptures rock my world.
At Rhinebeck I found the Movingmud booth (again). At Maryland I bought their glass shawl pins and made them into necklaces. At Rhinebeck they had these cool big glass buttons. I immediately fell in love. Hard.
I bought this big button and added a choker length of satin cord, some silver fastenings and a lobster claw closure. It took about $2 in materials and 10 minutes of labor with needle nose pliers to make this into a fabby necklace.
Seems like a good mix of craftiness and retail therapy that nets me a cool necklace.
