I promised I would give you a closer look at the pile of sparkly treasure I posted about last time so here we go. These are the glass rhinestones. I put them in the pink jewelry box that was holding the MOP buttons for the photograph. They look so cozy I might just let them stay.
This is the whole pile all sorted out, less the really ordinary ones, of which there were very few.
These are my favorites of the non-glass. Those brown ones with the orange dangles are wood. One has come undone so I need to either find some old string that matches the others or re-tie them all. The big plastic one on the far right is one of the most interesting buttons I have found. The filigree leaves on top are metal.
A bunch of MOP and the plastic rhinestone buttons.
Here is a closer look at that bone button. Most of the bone buttons I find are small and very utilitarian. This slice is unique.
There was plenty of non-button goodies, as well, and these will be put to good use in my inspiration kits, especially all that rhinestone trim. The necklace with the baguette rhinestones is broken but can also be re-purposed for artwork. Those black things are big sequin beads.
A little more of the non-buttons. My favorites ate those two black and sliver shoe clips and the old red barrette. Down at the bottom, center are a group of round rhinestone beads. A very fun sort!!
