"Bliss" - Bangle

This is something new I tried. The main element in this bracelet is a metal cut button 1 1/8 inch wide. It is attached to the wire mandrel of the bracelet. The wire coils on this one are burgundy doubled coiled - it also has a handmade clasp and a dragonfly charm. I like this idea a lot and I am going to make more bracelets with buttons. I am looking on e-bay to buy some steel cut antique buttons in different sizes - so far I have been outbid on the ones I wanted. I am going to make a trip to a few antique shops near me and also look when I go back up to our PA house - but in the meantime I will continue to look and bid on e-bay!
