Those beautiful wooden and shell buttons had been sleeping in my drawer for at least 5 years, and I had a flash of inspiration just looking at them yesterday. I used Austrian Swarovsky crystal beads, and also gemstones (Turquoise and Lapis Lazuli) and Silver plated charms. Oh there is some ceramic too in there, and shell as well. Plus ! Crystal from Bohemia, Indian and African glass beads… Oh the result is… just… bright!
