Got a box or jar full of buttons carefully saved by your mother or grandmother? For 2015 I’m in search of great ways to put those buttons to use. Here is this week’s idea:

What an elegant way to accent a single button and make it into a beautiful pendant. Who wouldn’t enjoy getting something like this featuring the button of an ancestor along with a story or a bit about that person. Such a great idea. It would probably take a bit of practice to learn to shape the wire but it would be well worth the effort.

It would be a good idea to document where the buttons for your project came from and any relevant stories or information about that person or family. If you are looking for more button crafts, check out my Pinterest board.
