A little bit about the buttons I use. All the Military buttons come off US Military uniforms. I use Army (BDU, ACU, and DCU), Air Force, Marine, and Navy buttons. The majority of the buttons are from Army uniforms. I get this question a lot: Yes, ACUs have buttons….check your fly! The ACU pants have buttons on the fly and back pockets. The ACU and BDU buttons are almost identical. The ACU buttons tend to have a little more of a shine to them and are slightly darker while the BDU buttons are more matte and slightly lighter, more olive green. The Air Force buttons I have are identical to ACU buttons. In the descriptions for each piece, I try to specify the branch or version of a uniform that the buttons belong to. However, some of the buttons came in groups sent to me from other military wives and I can’t be 100% sure where each button has come from.

As usual the bracelet was beautiful and shipped very quickly. My Mom thought the Altoid container was hilarious. Can't wait to see her wearing it next year.

About

It's all about buttons.

My life seems to be defined by seemingly insignificant events that turn out to be anything but insignificant. I started doing jewelry on a whim nine years ago, I had no idea that it would end up being such a satisfying creative experience. My eye is drawn to color and pattern. Jewelry is a medium that incorporates color, pattern, and texture in the most wonderful way.

On my own crazy journey through this world I collect beads and buttons from all the places I visit: buttons from the little shop in Nuremberg Germany, shells from Holly Beach in Louisiana, beads from the little voodoo shop in New Orleans, buttons from the old Baking soda can my Mother gave me. My husband often teases me that I use making jewelry as a cover for my true obsession of collecting beads and buttons. To my eye, each bead or button is a complicated combination of color, pattern, and texture. Each bead looks one way when I hold it in my hand, and then changes as I add other beads on a strand. Just like in my life, no one part stands alone, each part in a piece of jewelry is as important as any other. Great consideration goes into the selection of each component. For me it is important that there is a pattern, and that the texture and color all work together to achieve an overall effect in each piece of jewelry. To me, each piece of jewelry represents a piece of me, and my view of the world.

I am currently living in Texas where my husband is stationed. Being an Army wife has created a wonderful opportunity for me to see parts of the world I might never have had the opportunity to explore. Every new adventure is an opportunity for inspiration and of course an opportunity to get more buttons!

    I love being able to create wearable art using unexpected objects. My husband is active duty Army which has allowed me to see some of the most amazing places. I see each place is its own inspiration and a chance to collect new buttons!
