Bumbershoot Supplies' Boot Buttons Featured in Fall Stringing Magazine

I'm delighted to share that Bumbershoot Supplies' vintage mother of pearl boot buttons are featured in a design by Lorelei Eurto in the Fall 2010 issue of Stringing Magazine!

Quoting from the caption (page 40): "A vintage boot button attached near the pendant lends a charming touch to this front-clasping jasper necklace."

Here's a close up of the pendant with the button adornment. These particular mother of pearl buttons were made in the US between the 1920's and 1940's and this lot was dyed a warm burnt orange color. 

You may or may not find boot buttons if you visit Bumbershoot Supplies.  They regularly come in, and then go out of the shop just about as quickly as they come in.  However, you will always find lots of unique vintage supplies that can add just the right special touch to your designs, be they jewelry, fiber, paper, mixed media.  Hope to see you soon!
