A little button fairy flitting by.....

I have entered a whole new area for me - working with beads and wire. It was an interesting introduction, as I learned that there is a big difference in the gauge of wire, as well as regular wire and MEMORY wire. Little did I know that the lower the number, the thicker the wire. The big haha on me was the memory wire. It doesn't bend well, it pops right back into shape, and darn it all, it will NOT straighten out for anything. Nor will it go through the holes in a button. Well, it will go through one, but not the second. After asking for advice, and a speedy run out to get new supplies, I was finally able to put her together. I loved this project - loved the colors, the feel and just how much fun she is. I wish I had more buttons on hand, because I would have made several more. These are going to make great little gifts down the road for some special friends.

Isn't she lovely?
