Old Glass Buttons

I lugged home a gallon glass jar full of buttons, from a household sale, on Friday.

What a sucker I am for old buttons. Especially glass ones.

This sweet pair are a ruin, they're all scratched and pitted from use and banging around in a jar with a thousand other buttons, but I adore them.

They were made on 1/16" mandrels. Yes, I am going to attempt to make some. I think you should too.

* I tagged these 'vintage venetians' and if you look to my right sidebar and scroll down you will see that listing in my categories (flavors). If you click on it all of my postings that focus on old Italian glass beads.will come up*
