I have many, many, many new creations that I have’t had time to post on Heycaryann. I spend all my days off working on new pieces. Stay tuned for more vintage rhinestone and victorian button rings. Also I spent the day today weaving a lot of new button bracelets. I post new pieces on my store once a week or so. My boyfriend’s grandmother’s friend just sent me a box of old metal buttons from her personal collection. She has been in a button club for many years. Someday I also wil join a online blogs button club!
You know I like ALL the pieces I’ve created at Heycaryann. I only make pieces that I personally would wear, and most times I make doubles of everything. I’ve always been fond of flowers and rhinestones. I wear my own jewelry everyday.
