Susan Davis shows crafters how to create wonderful vintage-style buttons and turn them into attractive jewelry. The sophisticated and elegant projects are carved and stenciled, and made of such materials as metal, jet glass, pearl, bakelite, and celluloid and every one is gorgeous. Davis presents them in historical order, and provides a little history and anecdotal description of each style.

I LOVE THIS BOOK! I saw it at the fabric store and I had to have it. I just love buttons. The photos are gorgeous and the instructions are clears. The only complain I have is the list of suppliers in the back. Most are either inadequate or wholesale only. And finding buttons is no easy feat, either. I wish a modern button manufacture would make replica vintage buttons. *Sigh*
