Reclaimed Treasures

I've been noticing an amazing emergence of artists on Etsy reclaiming vintage buttons to create new and wonderful works of wearable art. While I don't wear jewelry, I have started collecting interesting pieces and framing them (without glass) in my modern white frames (I'll add pictures of my collection here someday). I can see myself donating a huge collection to a museum of modern art someday for the whole world to appreciate the detail we've been losing in modern society! If you run across other interesting pieces (on or off of Etsy) you think I should add to my collection, please email me!

I was up late last night searching on Etsy and found a treasury list that had just been started that included this beautiful piece (one of many!) by Brandi (a.k.a. Enthral) and had to snap it up for my collection right away!You had me at "wear. smile. repeat." ...I am a HUGE fan of lorimarsha (we are not worthy ***insert bows***) Her rich collection of warm, natural colors and interesting shapes makes her work stand out. She has a bunch of wonderful things in her shop, it's well worth the look-see even if you don't wear or collect jewelry. Great idea on the components lorimarsha!
