Yes, I said the other day that I would post a photo of the things I bought at the little antique shop in South Pasadena. I got sucked into the button cabinet and couldn't leave.
I thought there were some nice old buttons. And the buckle is really interesting. It is a French cut steel buckle. Not sure exactly what it may have been used for but I plan to use it on a bracelet. It curves very nicely on the wrist. I am thinking a peyote band with something coming out of the center of the buckle. A bead explosion perhaps? Also, I am thinking the band should be layered somehow. But it will be for another day. I'm busy working on all sorts of things right now but can't seem to focus on anything in particular for very long. Focus has been an issue for me for the past few weeks. Maybe it's the beautiful weather we've been having. In any case, I'll probably post about some of these projects in the future, when I find my focus and get a few things done.
