hey guys!
a few months ago, a friend gave me a bunch of buttons from her grandmother's button box -- they were all old buttons from brothers\fathers\sons\uncles\etc school uniforms! anyway, i was so excited but i didn't know what to do with them -- but finally, i used 6 of them to make this ponytail holder. i also added a few wooden beads and strung everything together on a piece of elastic. i love wearing it cos it makes a little jingle :-)

the 3rd picture is a little fuzzy, but i wanted to show how i put it together! i used 3 split rings strung on the elastic and attached the buttons and wire-wrapped beads to the split rings. then, i used a jump ring to keep it all together!

What is the nature of this SIG?

That is just gorgeous.  The buttons are beautiful on their own but work so perfectlyl bunched up with the other beads.  I'm totally jealous.
