Find a Button: Make Something

Even though it's Minnesota State Fair time not everyone can attend. (I can't attend today either.)

Well maybe you can have some fun making a little jewelry (which you can wear to the Fair when you can attend). Last week I was putting odds and ends away and found this neat antique button. (I have some friends that like to go shopping for antiques and when I go with them, since I'm not really interested in antiques, I always look for buttons and for old paper items—the latter because I love the way people solve graphics problems.)

I wanted to make something quick. I didn't want to take time to bead an entire necklace. Also I wanted the button to show at the front of the necklace. I found 3 left over flat stone beads. (Do you recognize the stone? If so write and identify it for me as I've lost my notes on it.)
