Format: Paperback
I love buttons. I collect buttons, but not in the sense of a serious collector looking for historically important buttons. I collect ordinary buttons, fun buttons, buttons I take off clothes that are too worn to wear, buttons from yard sales, buttons from friends...anywhere I can find buttons. I store most of them by color in canning jars...so they make a pretty display and I can build designs based on color.

Amy Barickman, founder of Indygo Junction and the author of Button Ware, obviously loves buttons as much as I do. Her new book features 33 projects from elegant to cute, all suitable for creating with new and vintage buttons. This is a visually beautiful book, well-laid out with 90 gorgeous photos. Instructions are easy to follow, in a type size suitable for those with over-40 eyes.

Button Ware contains complete instructions for bracelets, necklaces, beaded pins, rings, and boutique style apparel. The projects use simple techniques as well as techniques and sophisticated designs for experienced crafters. Kits for some of the projects are available from Indygo Junction for many of the designs if you are not lucky enough to have a button stash. This book makes me want to go out and find more buttons!

This is a beautiful book that has a lot of wonderful ideas for making pretty things from buttons. It also has great photography too. However, I believe the author writes to those with jewelry making & sewing skills. I think readers would have appreciated having resources to other supplies besides the buttons.

This book has a ton of great pictures, with easy to follow instructions. A great reference tool for creating unique projects with old (or new) buttons.

Although this is a slim volume, it has a lot to offer. The photos are clear and inspiring. The projects have a more modern look than a lot of other button jewelry books. Instructions seem clear, but haven't tried a project quite yet, so won't know until I try.

I saw this book at a craft show and some of the projects made up from this book. Great ideas to use up left over buttons.

I haven't tried the projects yet, but this book has great pictures and starter ideas for playing with buttons as jewelry. If I never actually make anything, I have already enjoyed owning this book.

So much fun! Amy does such a great job stacking and matching her antique buttons. Some of them look delicious enough to eat.
