It’s a wrap!

I am updating and filling my Etsy store, so it’s time to take some photos.  Equipment gathered and off to the sand box, yes, I take my photos on top of the (closed) sand box!  Usually it provides a nice, shady spot with enough natural light.

Summer is still shining down on us, so those tanned wrists need a colourful gaggle of bracelets.  Even better if one bracelet wraps around, giving four layers of colour and beautiful beads.

Morning Rose Wrap Bracelet by catseatdogs

The vintage buttons I use to fasten are often found with great excitement in the bottom of a tin full of wonderful haberdashery from years gone by.  Tins which waft out a musty smell and are full of ‘kept until they become useful’ items – buttons, snaps, needles and lots of random bits and bobs.

Buttons with part of the original garment attached,  a coat which once kept out the cold with giant buttons or a gown which closed with exquisite shell buttons in a soft grey or a luminescent cream.  I take those buttons and wash them one by one and admire their colour and texture as they are revealed as the (old) toothbrush scrubs away the years.

I love to see and wear lots of bracelets together, mixing colours and designs and piling them on!
