With fresh beads in hand, I started rooting around the family button jar to see what I could recycle. Much to my surprise, I found a carved brooch with a broken pin. I have no idea where it came from, who originally owned it or what it's made of. I only know that it was a perfect for the piece. Small white buttons and silver wire spirals were added to the pile. The spirals were a product of my early jewelry making days. What treasures! Proof that there is a plus side to all that hoarding!
